Anthology of Negro Poets in the U.S.A. is the aural complement to "The Poetry of the Negro, 1746-1949," edited by Langston Hughes along with Arna Bontemps - who reads the selections heard on this album. This collection characterizes the rich history of poetry in the African American community, including slaves such as Phyllis Wheatley who "won" their freedom with this skill and whose poem "His Excellency General Washington" may be heard here.
