U.S.A. / 1939
I read this poem today and was totally wowed. Tolson was a poet, playwright, professor, debate team coach, football coach and Poet Laureate of Liberia - amongst many other fascinating thing. This is a small excerpt from an epic poem. It is considered his masterpiece and it is especially relevant today. Tolson's question rang true in 1939 and still does today: How can we forget?
