Roses and Revolutions: The Selected Writings of Dudley Randall
"Dudley Randall was one of the foremost voices in African American literature during the twentieth century, best known for his poetry and his work as the editor and publisher of Broadside Press in Detroit. While he published six books of poetry during his life, much of his work has been out of print or fragmented among numerous anthologies. Roses and revolutions: the selected writings of Dudley Randall brings together his most popular poems with his lesser-known short stories, first published in The Negro digest during the 1960s, and several of his essays, which profoundly influenced the direction and attitude of the Black Arts movement.
