Furious Flower: African American Poetry from the Black Arts Movement to the Present

 
Furious Flower Book

Order Furious Flower from UVA Press.

Furious Flower provides a fascinating collective portrait of African-American poetry at the close of the twentieth century – as well as an indication of where it may be headed as we enter the twenty-first. The book includes biographies of the contributors and a dynamic collection of performance photographs by C.B. Claiborne featuring many of the Furious Flower participants as they appeared at the original 1994 conference.
