Furious Flower III

V. Gabbin, Joanne
This volume recalls the key role played by poets as architects of the Black Arts Movement, their contribution to the African American Freedom Struggle and adaptation to the political changes of the past half-century. It features a panel: “S.O.S Calling All Black People: Honoring the Memory of Amiri Baraka.” Readings by the ten poets below reveal how African American poetry acts both as an historical witness and advocate for racial justice. Poets in this episode: John Bracey, Jr., Tony Medina, Haki Madhubuti, Quincy Troupe, Ishmael Reed, Evie Shockley, Jessica Care Moore, Mariahadessa Ekere Tallie, Camille Dungy, Nikki Giovanni, and Sonia Sanchez.
