Editorial Reviews

bn.com
Young, gifted, and black, Don L. Lee (Haki R. Madhubuti) epitomized the Black Arts Movement in the late 1960s. His book, Groundwork, culls work from his 19 published books and presents to the reader the life of a man dedicated to the "conscious-raising" of the African American. Groundwork is a valuable resource for students of the Black Arts Movement, Negritude, and Afrocentrism.
