About the Author

Born in Alabama, educated in New York City, Sanchez is a leading poet of the Black Arts Movement, whose poetry is written from political, economic, and social concerns as well as literary ones. Although her literary focus has been primarily to express her experience as an African American woman, mostrar mais Sanchez claims, "if you write from a black experience, you're writing from a universal experience as well." Sanchez's poems are direct, colloquial, and often militant. Many of her works are for children, such as her "poems for young brothas and sistuhs," as she puts it in It's a New Day (1971). Yet she also writes with tenderness about love. As academic interest in the voices of women and African Americans has intensified, critical interest in and acceptance of Sanchez's work has increased.

For over six decades, Sonia Sanchez has been a fiercely powerful -- and empowering -- voice for all of us, and for people of color in particular. Her contributions as a writer, an educator, and an activist have been invaluable. Gathering highlights from all of Ms. Sanchez's poetry, this compilation is sure to inspire love and community engagement.

Totally not an interesting or good for me.

Using the term haiku for phrase snippets and then stringing 15 together to make a poem - why call it haiku? Haiku get their strength from their form - not from twisting it.
