Prophets for a New Day

Detroit: Broadside Press, 1970. First edition. 8vo. Saddle-stapled in photo-illustrated wraps. 32pp. Wraps mildly rubbed; some light creasing to bottom fore-edge; small circular sticker at base of rear cover. Very good or better; a nice copy.

Second collection of verse, following For My People (1942), by American poet Margaret Walker (1915-1998), a vital participant in the Chicago Black Renaissance and later the Black Arts Movement; poems about the Civil Rights movement, many of which draw symbolic links between participants like Martin Luther King Jr. and Medgar Evers and biblical prophets.
