Commentary on anthology

• Ward, Jerry W. "Poetry." "Washington Post" 1 Aug. 1999.
"American poetry is alive, well and stunningly democratic. Yes, poetry is free now from being the intellectual "property" of the schools and the presumptive "overseers" of culture. It has visibility. We heard the irony- tinged voices heralding this change in the landmark anthology In the Tradition (1992), edited by Kevin Powell and Ras Baraka."
