To Disembark was a book on poetry put together by Gwendolyn Brooks. She includes stories of life for African Americans, especially in the city. This book captures the emotion often brought up about racial discrimination and hardship. I like the fact that there are so many different types of poems relating to different subjects on black culture. This book would be most appropriate with older elementary students, such as fourth through sixth grade. This book requires a higher reading comprehension, and could easily be used during black history month in February.
