Abstract:

Winner of the 1984 Lucretia Mott Award, Sonia Sanchez is a leading force in American letters, who equates poetry and politics and forges a style out of substandard black English and by writing out the experiences of poor blacks. This collection of poetry and prose includes sketches of the blighted lives of her childhood friends in Harlem, an old woman encountered in the park, and a young mother of twins trying to help her man change his habits, as well as a section of fully developed political poems. The power of her feeling and her clear vision of who she is and what she aims to accomplish characterize the pieces, some of which are plaintive and poignant, some tough and militant. ISBN 0-938410-23-7 (pbk.) : $6.95.
