Summary
A collection of poems exploring the theme of African-American identity. A cycle of a dozen lyrical poems exploring issues of African-American identity through delicately interwoven images. . . . Laden with meaning, the poetry is significant and lovely. Cooper's paintings, with vibrant, unsentimentalized characters in earth tone illumined with gold, are warm, contemplative, a beautiful complement to Thomas's eloquence. Poems rooted in home, family, and the African-American experience
