The poets who support and foster the work of the Poetry Caravan are doing literary missionary work by bringing poetry into the lives of the often alienated residents of assisted living centers, women's shelters, senior centers and similar institutions. The choice of "caravan" for a title suggests poetry that moves from place to place instead of passively sitting still, waiting to be recognized. While the styles of the poems are diverse, from formal to lyric, they share in common clarity, accessibility, and vigor. (Book jacket)

Ripped from middle-class life in Philadelphia, and transplanted to a single-parent household in the segregated south, Sarah, a precocious black child struggles to be the master of her fate. She refuses to accept the segregation that tries to confine her--a system her mother accepts as the southern way of life. A brave memoir that testifies to the author's fiery spirit and sense of self that sustained her through family, social and cultural upheavals.
