Roses and revolutions : the selected writings of Dudley Randall by Dudley Randall( )

From the Publisher: "Dudley Randall was one of the foremost voices in African American literature during the twentieth century, best known for his poetry and his work as the editor and publisher of Broadside Press in Detroit. While he published six books of poetry during his life, much of his work has been out of print or fragmented among numerous anthologies. Roses and Revolutions: The Selected Writings of Dudley Randall brings together his most popular poems with his lesser-known short stories, first published in The Negro Digest during the 1960s, and several of his essays, which profoundly influenced the direction and attitude of the Black Arts movement." "Roses and Revolutions: The Selected Writings of Dudley Randall is arranged in seven sections: "Images from Black Bottom," "Wars: At Home and Abroad," "The Civil Rights Era," "Poems on Miscellaneous Subjects," "Love Poems," "Dialectics of the Black Aesthetic," and "The Last Leap of the Muse." Poems and prose are mixed throughout the volume and are arranged roughly chronologically. Taken as a whole, Randall's writings showcase his skill as a wordsmith and his affinity for themes of love, human contradictions, and political action. His essays further contextualize his work by revealing his views on race and writing, aesthetic form, and literary and political history. Editor Melba Joyce Boyd introduces this collection with an overview of Randall's life and career." The collected writings in Roses and Revolutions not only confirm the talent and the creative intellect of Randall as an author and editor but also demonstrate why his voice remains relevant and impressive in the twenty-first century. Randall was named the first Poet Laureate of the City of Detroit and received numerous awards for his literary work, including the Life Achievement Award from the National Endowment of the Arts in 1986. Students and teachers of African American literature as well as readers of poetry will appreciate this landmark volume
For Malcolm : poems on the life and the death of Malcolm X by Dudley Randall( Book )

13 editions published between 1967 and 1973 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the preface by Ossie Davis to the very last poem, this book is a great tribute to a great man, a man who so loved the black and disinherited of this world that he gave his life that they might live their own lives more abundantly. And yet these poems are testaments to his life, not to his death"--John Oliver Killens (back cover)

Black poetry : a supplement to anthologies which exclude Black poets( Book )

9 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because students at the University of Michigan complained that anthologies used in introductory poetry courses contained no Black poets, Broadside Press was asked to make a small collection. This booklet is a sampling of Black American poets, including poets of the Harlem Renaissance like Claude McKay and Jean Toomer, mature and established poets like Robert Hayden and Gwendolyn Brooks, and outstanding younger posts like Don L. Lee (Haki Madhubuti), Etheridge Knight, and LeRoi Jones
