Celebrate African American History Month in Stanzas and Song

 

A poet’s connection to history is often palpable, whether they are speaking directly to the past or reaching out to us Lucille Clifton Plaque, "For Cornelia" from some bygone era. Within American poetry, there is a rich tradition of African American voices speaking to both their personal histories and the larger historical narratives that have shaped their lives. A reader could explore African American history this month through the voices of Jazz Poetry, the Harlem Renaissance, or the Black Arts Movement, some of whom you’ll find on this list. I’ve added a couple newcomers and names that might be a little less familiar, too. Plus, there’s Tupac. All the makings of a good jumping off point to celebrate African American history this February.
