Summary

''[Bontemps's] most distinctive works are ringing affirmations of the human passion for freedom and the desire for social justice inherent in us all. Arnold Rampersad called him the conscience of his era and it could be fairly added that his tendency to fuse history and imagination represents his personal legacy to a collective memory.''--Charles L. James,The Oxford Companion to African American Literature(on the life and work of Arna Bontemps, editor ofAmerican Negro Poetry)
