Legacy: Women Poets of the Harlem Renaissance

For centuries, accomplished women — of all races — have fallen out of the historical records. The same is true for gifted, prolific, women poets of the Harlem Renaissance who are little known, especially as compared to their male counterparts. In this poetry collection, bestselling author Nikki Grimes uses "The Golden Shovel" poetic method — using a word from each line of an existing poem as the last word in a line of a new poem — to create wholly original poems based on the works of these groundbreaking women — and to introduce readers to their work.

Each poem is paired with one-of-a-kind art from today's most exciting female African-American illustrators. Legacy also includes a foreword, an introduction to the history of the Harlem Renaissance, author's note, and poet biographies. This is a stunning work that pays tribute to these women and their words — a wonderful resource and a book to cherish.
