The Book of American Negro Poetry

by James Weldon Johnson (Author)

First published in 1922, "The Book of American Negro Poetry" is one of the earliest and most essential anthologies of African-American verse ever brought to print. Edited by writer and diplomat James Weldon Johnson, this collection was published with the hope of bringing to the public a greater awareness of the art and literature created by Black writers.
