Anthology

Interviewed by: Rebekah Presson

Catalog Number: 20120224

As we cross from Black History Month into Women’s History Month, we go to the archives to revisit a program that examines important African-American writers, beginning with the 18th century’s Phyllis Wheatley and concluding with former U.S. Poet Laureate, Rita Dove. The program also features the late Margaret Walker and Gwendolyn Brooks, as well as recordings from the Folkways collection called Black American History in Ballad, Song, and Prose.
