Faison writes in various forms using both rhyme and free verse in a way that is both teaching and telling. Poems for young readers are included in this book (and all three books in the collection), but those interested in taking a close look at the history of African Americans, no matter what their age, will find this collection dead on in its reflections, recollections, and elections about this history. Teachers, parents, and poetry lovers will appreciate this book. Each poem yields a topic of discussion that will bring the study of Black History full circle for any individual or group. If you're wondering where to start or what to begin with as you study and research Black History, this is it.


Excerpt

REVIEW

The author poetically answers the question, "What is Black History?" In addition, with rhythmic lines and prolifically crafted verse, she pays homage and tribute to individuals and icons from slavery, the Jim Crow Era, the Civil Rights Movement, and even most popular phenomenons of today. Poems from this collection teach about slave masters, slave auctions and sale, the fight for voting rights, and individuals like Ruby Bridges and music legends like Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. The author goes further and makes indictments on the African American community in the present day with poems like "I Could Scream a Negro Spiritual," "A Dark Soliloquy," and "The New Slavery." But she shows the utmost respect to those who paved the way in poetic renditions "What I Owe You," "Fields of Praise," and "O Great Ancestor." Faison honors and exhibits the beauty of African American traditions with poems like "Soul Food" and "Old Time Religion." Readers will get a profound and poetic look into the reality that was and is African Americans; this book reveals the evolution of a people who's history is the backdrop and foundation of America. Read it and become the wiser on Black History. This book is recommended for schools, colleges, universities, book discussions, and historical reading. --Cross Keys Press

This is the final book in a 3 book collection written by Faison. You will want to get all three books by Faison bearing this title! The 1st Book in this collection (black cover/28 Days) is an AMAZON BEST SELLER ranking #10 out of the top 100 best sellers in African American Poetry! --Cross Keys Press
