One Last Word by Nikki Grimes

One Last Word: Wisdom from the Harlem RenaissanceAn exceptionally beautiful and moving piece of art. The author employs the "golden shovel" method of poetry, in which she takes a Harlem Renaissance poem and creates a new one. Some of these new poems carry with them the same themes and feelings of their poems of origin.

I ordered a copy for our library immediately upon finishing it, and plan on recommending it to as many students as possible.

I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
