This is an excellent book. I had it as a teenager in 1975. It has stories by James Baldwin and others, poems by Nikki Giovanni, such as " We real cool" My favorite is a story of an activist sitting in a whites only bar with a plate of chicken. Two white men come up to him and say, "what you do to that chicken we will do to you." So he picked it up and kissed it.
Love this book
