An excellent anthology of poets and poems speaking to culturally diverse experiences, many of the pieces reflecting superbly on what it means to be a minority in America, articulating the pain and hardship of life at home, at school, downtown, in search of work, and so on. It's an especially good collection of reflections on childhood and growing up in the face of racializing logics.

Awesome anthology. Bought it for my daughter for Christmas and had to order another for myself!

Shows a side of American life that is not discussed very much; that somewhat represents the immigrant experience.

Filled with voices you may not have heard before. Real stories of the real American dreams: success, failures, nightmares, and survival. Not just the standard american poets, nor the academy. Lots of real people. Worth the time.

my book was really damaged, definitely looked used for a "new" book

Was a very old book and had a tear on the cover. Since I was using it for school it was manageable, but may be difficult to trade in due to condition.

Challenging yet accessible. A wide range of topics and authors. I have culled numerous poems from this anthology to use in a multi-genre unit on identity.

Ok, but definitely left wing propaganda.
