The six poets represented in thiemmolume wrote during the first decades of this century, a period after Reconstruction and before the Harlem Renaissance when a new generation of African-Americans continued the struggle against injustice, violence, and hypocrisy, and strove for the betterment of their race. The poetry of these writers, while to some extent conventional, even derivative, is nevertheless noteworthy for what Pemberton in her introduction calls "its emphatic proclamation of self-worth, dignity, and membership in a community of upstanding and proud black people."
