Published by the University of Michigan Press in September 2011, my book The Black Arts Enterprise focuses on publishing and social factors associated with African American poetry and the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. As a complement to the book, I blog regularly about the black arts era and figures associated with the movement.
