America is not easy. It's a land of high ideals and stirring icons, but it is
also a land of harsh realities. We celebrate the incredible achievements
of individuals as we turn our gaze from hunger and homelessness in the
streets. We have a difficult time matching our words with our deeds.
This is where poetry comes in. A poem has the ability to personalize
the ideal, to make it tangible in a way that a speech or news report
cannot. It can widen the angle through which we view society. It can
move us to action. The poems in this anthology do just that: confront,
challenge, and inspire. They take us on a journey toward social justice,
starting in the shadows and slowly working our way home.About the Author:
Gail Bush, PhD, is professor in the reading and language department, director of the Center for Teaching through Children's Books, and director of the School Library Program at National-Louis University in Chicago, IL.
