Every goodbye ain't gone an anthology of innovative poetry by African Americans by Aldon Lynn Nielsen ( )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Just prior to the Second World War, and even more explosively in the 1950s and 1960s, a far-reaching revolution in aesthetics and prosody by black poets ensued, some working independently and others in organized groups. Little of this new work was reflected in the anthologies and syllabi of college English courses of the period. Even during the 1970s, when African American literature began to receive substantial critical attention, the work of many experimental black poets continued to be neglected. "Every Goodbye Ain't Gone" presents the groundbreaking work of many of these poets who carried on the innovative legacies of Melvin Tolson, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Robert Hayden. Whereas poetry by key figures such as Amirt Baraka, Tolson, Jayne Cortez, Clarence Major, and June Jordan is represented, this anthology also elevates into view the work of less studied poets such as Russell Atkins, Jodi Braxton, David Henderson, Bob Kaufman, Stephen Jonas, and Elouise Loftin. Many of the poems collected in the volume are currently unavailable and some will appear in print here for the first time. Coeditors Aldon Lynn Nielsen and Lauri Ramey provide a critical introduction that situates the poems historically and highlights the ways such poetry has been obscured from view by recent critical and academic practices. The result is a record of experimentation, instigation, and innovation that links contemporary African American poetry to its black modernist roots and extends the terms of modern poetics into the future

Black chant : languages of African-American postmodernism by Aldon Lynn Nielsen ( Book )
9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A valuable reassessment of African-American cultural history, Black Chant traces the embrace and transformation of black modernisms and postmodernisms by African-American poets in the decades after World War II. Centering on groups of avant-garde poets such as the Howard/Dasein poets, the Freelance group, the Umbra group, and others, Nielsen attends to those poets whose radical forms of new writing formed the basis for much of what followed in the Black Arts period. As well, he undertakes a critical rediscovery of recordings by the poets Amiri Baraka, Jayne Cortez, and Elouise Loftin, who worked with jazz composers and performers on compositions that combined post-Bop jazz with postmodern verse forms
Don't deny my name : words and music and the black intellectual tradition by Lorenzo Thomas ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Don't Deny My Name (which takes its title from a blues song) begins by laying out the case for the blues as constituting a body of literature, one that confronts the situation of African American migrants to the urban North and newer territories to the West. The essays that follow collectively provide a tour of the movement through classic jazz, bop, and the explosions of the free jazz era, followed by a section on R&B and Soul. The collection ends with a polemical essay about the hip hop phenomenon
Writing between the lines : race and intertextuality by Aldon Lynn Nielsen ( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nielsen contends that the designations "black" and "white" do not denote essential racial being, but rather that this kind of simplified grouping is a means of societal oppression. In a similar fashion, expectations of clear demarcations between the works of writers of African descent and the works of writers of European descent inhibit the acknowledgment that the boundaries between the two constantly shift and change
