Acclaimed author Nikki Grimes pens prescient new collection of poetry celebrating little-known women poets of the Harlem Renaissance.

For centuries, accomplished women have fallen out of historical records. The same is true for gifted women poets of the Harlem Renaissance.

In this poetry collection, bestselling and Children’s Literature Legacy Award–winning author Nikki Grimes uses “The Golden Shovel” method to create wholly original poems based on the works of these groundbreaking women. With powerful language and rich imagery, this collection shows readers of all ages the struggles and victories, the pain and joy experienced by women across generations.

Each poem is paired with unique art from African-American women illustrators to create a thought-provoking book with timely themes for today’s readers.

A foreword, author's note, poet biographies, and index makes this a wonderful resource and a book to cherish.
