Margaret Walker Week
Overall, Walker's poems serve as mediums for the display and perhaps preservation of a range of black cultural ideas. She projects an African American collective or communal voice in many of her works that really appeals to readers. Or more to the point, some of her poems seems as if she is a voice of the people.
This week, we're providing a few entries on her work, developing our notebook on Margaret Walker.
