Collected poems, many of them reflecting the efforts of Black students to come to terms with the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. "What shall be the revenge? Who will suffer the pain? / We cannot let our leaders work be in vain. / Will the whites forget him? Or laugh at him with their jokes? / Should we follow Stokeley Carmichael and go out and kill white folks? / Many of us wonder whether that's the thing to do. / It would hurt the white man but it would hurt us too..." (From "The Revenge," by Jacky Hunt).
