This has been the Literary Corner of Black Writers of the World. A series of analyses and interpretations of Black World Literature.
Today you've listened to an introduction to African English Poetry.
Technical assistance provided by Bob Chan. I'm Brooks Robinson. Readings done by [[Kuojo Yelekepala?]]
The Literary Corner was been made possible by funds from WHA Radio Madison, Wisconsin, a service of the University of Wisconsin Extension.
