Furious Flower: Seeding the Future of African American Poetry is an anthology of poems by more than one hundred award-winning poets, including Jericho Brown, Justin Philip Reed, and Tracy K. Smith, with themed essays on poetics from celebrated scholars such as Kwame Dawes, Meta DuEwa Jones, and Evie Shockley. The Furious Flower Poetry Center is the nation's first academic center for Black poetry. In this eponymous collection, editors Joanne V. Gabbin and Lauren K. Alleyne bring together many of the paramount voices in Black poetry and poetics active today, composing an electrifying mosaic of voices, generations, and aesthetics that reveals the Black narrative in the work of twentieth- and twenty-first-century writers. Intellectually enlightening and powerfully enlivening, Furious Flower explores and celebrates the idea of the Black poetic voice by posing the question, What's next for Black poetic expression?

Notes "Furious Flower: Seeding the Future of African American Poetry is the third anthology to come out of the project that began in 1994 with the first Furious Flower Poetry Conference. Like the two previous volumes--The Furious Flowering of African American Poetry (University of Virginia Press, 1999) and Furious Flower: African American Poetry from the Black Arts Movement to the Present (University of Virginia Press, 2004)--this anthology emerges from a conference, the third decade-defining conference, held in 2014"--Preface.
