From the Inside Flap:

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.
