think black!

Here's a classic black arts text -- Don L. Lee's think black! (1966). The image above displays the 1972 third edition, 15th printing. The book was published by Broadside Press, one of the most storied publishers of African American poetry.

In comparison to today's volumes of poetry by black poets, the cover is excessively simple. Still, the combination of the title, with its exclamation mark, and the image of the continent of Africa was intriguing to me, especially when I first encounter this edition years ago.
