Dead on arrival : poems by Jaki Shelton Green( Book )

7 editions published between 1977 and 1997 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When it first appeared, Dead on Arrival announced the emergence of a strong new voice in African - American verse. Fresh and unadorned, these poems were deeply rooted in Jaki Shelton Green's own life and family. It quickly sold out, and an augmented second edition was published in 1983. Over the past decade, as Green's audience has grown, Dead on Arrival sold out again, and both editions have become collector's items. Carolina Wren is pleased to reissue Dead on Arrival so that new readers may now see the development of Green's voice over two decades of poetic achievement."--NEWER EDITION
All the songs we sing : celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Carolina African American Writers' Collective by Carolina African American Writers' Collective( Book )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Carolina African American Writers' Collective celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary with All the Songs We Sing, an anthology of works by members of the Collective, edited by its founder, Lenard D. Moore. North Carolina Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton Green introduces the anthology, which includes works by Lenard D. Moore, Bridgette A. Lacy, Crystal Simone Smith, Evie Shockley, Camille T. Dungy, Carole Boston Weatherford, and many others. Individually, these poems, stories, and essays have helped these Carolinians voice their experiences, remind us of our history, and insist on change, and gathered together, their chorus is turned all the way up and demands to be heard. These writers have shaped the modern literary landscape of the Carolinas for the last twenty-five years and will continue to influence and inspire African-American writers for generations to come."--Publisher's description
