""Imagine Leda black -" begins Lyrae Van Clief-Stefanon's collection of poems. Mixing vernacular language with classical mythology, modern struggles with biblical trials, she gives voice to women past and present. Whether recalling last night's angry words or reliving a child's lost innocence, Black Swan is filled with pain and loss, with hope and the promise of salvation."--Jacket
Jacob Lawrence : the Migration series by Leah Dickerman( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1941, Jacob Lawrence, then just 23 years old, completed a series of 60 small tempera paintings with text captions about the Great Migration, the mass movement of black Americans from the rural South to the urban North that began in 1915-16. Within months of its making, the Migration Series was divided between The Museum of Modern Art (even-numbered panels) and the Phillips Memorial Gallery (odd-numbered panels). The work has since become a landmark in the history of African American art, a monument in the collections of both institutions and a crucial example of the way in which history painting was radically reimagined in the modern era. In 2015 and 2016, the panels will be reunited in exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art and at The Phillips Collection. This catalogue grounds Lawrence's Migration Series in the cultural and political debates that shaped the young artist's work and highlights its continued resonance for artists and writers today. An essay by Leah Dickerman situates the series within contemporary discussions about black history and an artist's social responsibilities in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Elsa Smithgall traces the acquisition and exhibition history of the Migration Series. Short commentaries on each panel explore Lawrence's career and technique, and the social history of the Migration. The catalogue also debuts ten poems commissioned from acclaimed poets that respond to the Migration Series. Elizabeth Alexander, honored as the poet at President Obama's first inauguration, introduces the section

Self and other portraits by Cary Alizabeth Marcous( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The poems in this manuscript are an experiment of voice and form in poetic portraiture. While many contain or point to surface details, most primarily draw from inner life, voice and monologue, to explore a more internal, atmospheric moment within their subjects. My hope is to make one particular cohesive whole of a highly fragmentary sequence of parts: a portrait of my writing as it's developed over the past two years
