Her name is so familiar; her poetry is not. The book contains Johnson's The Creation, one of my all time favorite poems, and several I've never read before that appeared before Langston Hughes began publishing.
American Negro Poetry: An Anthology (American Century)This book cemented a deep love of Black History and Poetry. This is a wonderful gift for any poetry lover.

This book will not be shelved. It is one to be revisited again and again. This morning, I read again for the umpteenth time, Dead Fires:
If this is peace, this dead and laden thing,
Then better far the hateful fret, the sting.
Better the sound forever seeing balm
Than this grey calm!
Is this pain’s surcease? Better far the ache,
The long-drawn dreary day, the night’s white wake,
Better the choking sigh, he sobbing breath
Than passion’s death!
