One Last Word: Wisdom from the Harlem Renaissance
by Nikki Grimes
Women's History Month in March honors the contributions of women to our shared past and present. One Last Word by Nikki Grimes provides an opportunity to segue from one month to another. This brilliant little gem includes selections of poetry from Harlem Renaissance authors such as Countee Cullen, William Waring Cuney, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Langston Hughes, Georgia Douglas Johnson, Clara Ann Thompson, and Jean Toomer. They are woven together with Nikki Grimes exquisite verse.
The concept is intriguing, the poetry poignant, and the art glorious. Back matter includes individual biographies of the featured poets and artists, sources and an index.
An excellent addition to youth collections in public and school libraries as well as home and classroom libraries.
