This is a beautiful collection attesting to the power of all poems and all forms of protest. The anthology includes poetry from 43 modern greats and up-and-comings, personal biographies of each writer, and original artwork and posters spanning decades of the civil rights struggle. Each voice distinctly calls out the history of being black in America, from the first slaves to #BlackLivesMatter and the future beyond. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus
