African-American poetry is an ever-growing and ever-changing art form... in coffee houses and night clubs... from the blues and be-bop, to rap and hip-hop. "Catch the Fire!!!" is more than a poetry anthology. It is a cultural event: the indroduction of a new generation of African-American poets by an established generation, and a celebration of contemporary African-American poetry. Through the themes of family, the city, revolution, the body, and the soul, June Jordan, Amiri Baraka, Abiodun Oyewole (of the Last Poets), Ntozake Shange, and Sonia Sanchez discuss their own generation of poets and their thoughts about the emerging poets whose poems they are presenting here.
