Sing the Sun Up: Creative Writing Ideas from African American Literature. In Sing the Sun Up, 20 writers present new and exciting ways to motivate students to write imaginatively, inspired by African American poetry, prose, and drama. In The American Scholar, Ralph Waldo Emerson called for a literature emerging from the particularities of the new nation, and a host of great 19th- and 20th-century American poets, fiction writers, and playwrights responded to his call.

Besides the thematic issue of the marginalization of African-Americans, the poem also illustrates Thomas's formal range.

Rowell, in Callaloo (Baltimore, Maryland), 4(1–3), 1981, and with Hermine Pinson, in Callaloo (Baltimore, Maryland), 22(2), spring 1999. Besides the thematic issue of the marginalization of African-Americans, the poem also illustrates Thomas's formal range. Like Gwendolyn Brooks, he is a poet who is comfortable writing about highly polemical subjects in a variety of poetic styles.

Teachers of English literature, music and multicultural studies will find this to be an invaluable source for supplementary reading and writing lessons on personal narrative, history, drama and poetry. Diverse methods of inspiring students to write through readings of African American literature—from all over the Americas—include exercises using the poetry of Nobel laureate Derek Wolcott, Aimée Césare, Gwendolyn Brooks, James Baldwin, Rita Dove, Bob Kaufman, Nikki Giovanni, and Langston Hughes. Exercises stressing the musical influence on jazz and blues poetry, and the resultant use of lyric poetic devices, also fortify this collection. Included are student samples, a select bibliography, and a brief discography.
