African American Poetry (1870-1928): A Digital Anthology


The sonnet was an important poetic form used by many Black writers during this period, including writers from the older generation (i.e., James Weldon Johnson, Carrie Williams Clifford) as well as younger writers like Claude McKay. 

As of January 2024, we have identified and tagged about 63 poems in the anthology as sonnets. There are likely more poems in the collection yet to be tagged. -AS
