I Am the Darker Brother An Anthology of Modern Poems by African AmericansR in mind Along with selections from Langston Hughes and Gwendolyn Brooks this newly updated version features poems by such contemporary poe. I read the 1968 edition so my reading of the poems were guided by Charlemae Rollins' foreword which situates the dark skinned child as actively presenting a culture as spontaneous as it is unrecognized in their city home which Rollins argues is the environment which brings the greatest pressure and produces the greatest literature in our time ii Adoff's preface follows which explains that this anthology was created to present good interesting and evocative poems by Negro Americans as There is a need for Negroes to know of and experience through the eyes of other Negroes how it has been and how it is to be a Negro in American and for whites to become familiar with this part of their American heritage through the vision of life as Negroes in this country see it iv The collection of poems is a strong reflection of the best poems of the time with contributions from Amiri Baraka under LeRoi Jones Gwendolyn Brooks Jean Toomer and Mari Evans By framing the anthology as being specifically for youth and including some really interesting illustrations makes this collection even worthwhile to study many years later
