KIRKUS REVIEW

There is nothing about this which will confine its appeal to juniors only. But, through careful selection, the editor has included enough variety to catch the interest of youthful lovers of poetry, and to share with them the riches the Negro poets have given to our literature. Fold material, legend, religious poems, poems with humor, with pictorial sense, a few (not many) lyrical poems, poems with picture quality, narrative poems, poems in dialect, and not in dialect. Rich winnowing. Biographical notes at the end give this additional reference value.
