About the Book

A study of art and culture through poetry

Invite your students to experience the richness, diversity, and appeal of Latino and African American poetry and cultures in these two soft cover collections. Illustrations—created by high school students inspired by the poets’ writings—accompany the text. Discussion questions following each selection encourage students to explore themes and build critical thinking skills. Biographical sketches of the authors and descriptions of their cultural backgrounds are included.

African American Poetry presents both classic and contemporary poems, including work from many of today's most popular poets and lyricists. Latino Poetry features works chosen for interest and accessibility by poets of Mexican, Caribbean, and South American descent. Among the poets featured, you will find Maya Angelou, Gwendolyn Brooks, Victor Hernande Cruz, Sandra Maria Esteves, Nikki Giovanni, Langston Hughes, Tato Laviera, Gary Soto, and many others.
