The Deprived, but the Prudent (Poems by Myrtle Span)

 
9780806209302: The Deprived, but the Prudent (Poems by Myrtle Span)

The poems of Myrtle Span are mirrors of her life. She was raised among ten hungry brothers and sisters and educated in a one-room shack. Married at age sixteen, she has eight living children who have surpassed her academically: Two of them are college educated. With the civil rights movement came her politicization, and she is an active champion of justice for poor and minority-group people. She has been jailed for demonstrating against hunger, job discrimination, unfair housing practices, and police brutality in her native Arizona. She makes her living from the land: twenty-seven acres that she owns and farms. The Deprived, but the Prudent is her first published work.
