Poems from Black Africa
Edited by Langston Hughes.
Indiana University Press: 1963. First edition. Hardcover in dust jacket. Near fine.
'"To understand Africa today, it is wise to listen to what its poets say . . . Certainly the poetry of contemporary Africa indicates its emotional climate . . . a pride in and love of the African heritage, physically, spiritually, and culturally.' Thus Langston Hughes, in introducing this first major anthology of African poetry, points up the significance of a literary achievement little known to the American reader."
