Published: Vintage - September 12th, 1990

Limber, lyrical poems that capture the jazz-infused Harlem of the mid-20th Century, and the bitter experiences of blacks in American history, while anticipating and addressing the racial stigmas of today. Street-smart, musical, and natural, Hughes's work is deservedly a touchstone of American poetry. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
