Of Poetry and Protest: From Emmett Till to Trayvon Martin
City Lights Books, Thursday, June 30 at 7pm
A bookrelease party and evening of poetry co-hosted by Tamara Cushway and Michael Warr.

Readings by devorah major, CS Giscombe, Al Young, and Michael Warr from the new book:

Of Poetry and Protest: From Emmett Till to Trayvon Martin

Complied by Phil Cushway, Edited by Michael Warr

Published by W.W. Norton

City Lights celebrates the release of this stunning new anthology that illuminates today's black experience through the voices of our most transformative and powerful African American poets.

Included in this extraordinary volume are the poems of 43 of America's most talented African American wordsmiths, including Pulitzer Prize–winning poets Rita Dove, Natasha Tretheway, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Tracy K. Smith, as well as the work of other luminaries such as Elizabeth Alexander, Ishmael Reed, and Sonia Sanchez. Included are poems such as "No Wound of Exit" by Patricia Smith, "We Are Not Responsible" by Harryette Mullen, and "Poem for My Father" by Quincy Troupe. Each is accompanied by a photograph of the poet along with a first-person biography. The anthology also contains personal essays on race such as “The Talk” by Jeannine Amber and works by Harry Belafonte, Amiri Baraka, and The Reverend Dr. William Barber II, architect of the Moral Mondays movement, as well as images and iconic political posters of the Black Lives Matter movement, Malcolm X, and the Black Panther Party. Taken together, Of Poetry and Protest gives voice to the current conversation about race in America while also providing historical and cultural context. It serves as an excellent introduction to African American poetry and is a must-have for every reader committed to social justice and racial harmony.

Philip Cushway is the owner of Artrock and the author of Art of the Dead.

Michael Warr received a Creative Work Fund award for “Tracing Poetic Memory.” He is deputy director of the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco. (CityLightsBooks)
