Description:

In the grand, narrative tradition of Gwendolyn Brooks and Edward Sanders, this riveting collection of poetic plays and photo-documentary poems exposes the human cost of corporate greed and gives voice to the growing crisis faced in communities across America. "The several long poems that make up this book build into each other with devastating force and understatement, breaking poetic boundaries, regenerating the rich tradition of working-class literature."-Adrienne Rich Mark Nowak is the author of the critically acclaimed debut book of poems Revenants, the editor of Xcp: Cross Cultural Poetics and the co-editor of Visit Teepee Town: Native Writings After the Detours. He grew up in Buffalo, New York and lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he is active in the labor movement.

Amiri Baraka was born LeRoi Jones on October 7, 1934, in Newark, New Jersey. Considered a highly controversial writer, Baraka deals with the experiences and anger of the African American community while describing and validating the quality of black life. Baraka was educated at Howard University and has taught at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and Rutgers University. Early in his career, he aligned himself with the beat generation. After visiting Cuba, he developed a more militant political voice and attacked much of the white community that had previously been his allies. Since that time, his writing has been firmly centered on the black experience and has been aggressive and separatist. In 1964, Baraka's play, The Dutchman, won an Obie Award for Best American off-Broadway play and in 1967, it was made into a film. Other works include the plays The Slave and The Toilet and a collection of poetry, Preface to a Twenty-Volume Suicide Note.
