Deep Rivers; A Portfolio: 20 Contemporary Black American Poets; Teachers' Guide.
Madgett, Naomi L., Ed.
This publication offers 20 bulletin-board-oriented posters of varying colors and sizes (from 8" X 13" to 10" X 15"), each of which features a poem by a contemporary black American poet. Poems have been selected for their literary excellence, diversity, appropriateness, and student appeal, and are intended to familiarize students with the work of black poets. The 20 poets represented include Robert Hayden, June Jordan, Jill Witherspoon Boyer, Gerald W. Barrax, Margaret Walker, and Dudley Randall. An accompanying teachers' guide presents suggestions for displaying, reading, and discussing the poems and provides specific discussion questions for each of the poster-poems. (GW)
