Course Description

ENG 252
Poets of Color of the 20th and 21st Centuries

This course examines the movements of poets of color of the last hundred years with emphasis on how the Harlem Renaissance foreshadowed the Black Arts Movement, the Spoken Word Movement, and poetry by writers of color. Through discussion, research, writing, and presentation, we examine and create methodologies that address characteristics and cultural attributes of the writing. Special attention is paid to creation of new forms, themes, tributes, and historic testimony.
