New Negro Poets. [Edited by Langston Hughes; Signed by Helen Morgan Brooks]
Anthology of poetry by over thirty African American writers, primarily men. This copy is inscribed by contributor Helen Morgan Brooks who offers two poems within. The anthology was edited by Langston Hughes and Gwendolyn Brooks wrote the foreword. The dust jacket blurb describes a new environment where the Negro poet can be freed from writing protest literature and is now in an age where the civil rights movement has allowed him/her to write on all subjects, without constraint.
