They shall run Harriet Tubman poems

What James Tate does for the flat Midwest dialect or Miss Lou for jamaican patois, Quraysh Ali Lansana does for the African-American, southern vernacular of Harriet Tubman, reclaiming its vigor and integrity. Lansana has re-imag(in)ed her heroism--a moment of grace in this sad, great country's history--and he lights her stubbornness and devotion and courage with his rich language. Harriet instructs, "don't point to da ruins of your fadda's house." Quraysh Ali Lansana points to its turrets. --Susan Wheeler.
