An exploration of African-American history and popular culture emphasizing the relations between men and women

Sam Cornish’s new and selected poems, in the voices and with the lyrics of the blues, grow out of the historical and personal reminiscences and traditions of artists like Langston Hughes and Margaret Walker. The poems are autobiographical and biographical, expressed through such art forms as film noir, science fiction, blues, jazz and other aspects of American popular culture.
