About the Book

Here are powerful and soulful first-person poems in the voices of residents who make up Harlem, the legendary New York City neighborhood: basketball players, teachers, mail carriers, jazz artists, maids, veterans, nannies, students, and more. These fifty-four poems, all in different voices but written by one hand capture the energy and resilience of a neighborhood and a people.
