A Daughter's Geography by Ntozake Shange
1983, Hardcover

In her new book of poetry, Ntozake Shange maps the expanding horizons of the black imagination today, from the indigo moods of Harlem streets to the sun-drenched colors of the Caribbean, from passionate songs of pain and outrage to the tipsy cakewalks of love's exhilaration. Out of the music of black speech she creates poems that fall over your day like a wash of azure, words that dance, strut, cruise, weep, and shout with life and power; songs to declare her visions and map the geography of life and beauty she would claim for her daughter.
