Revise the Psalm: Work Inspired by the Writing of Gwendolyn Brooks, edited by Quraysh Ali Lansana and Sandra Jackson-Opoku, in addition to The Golden Shovel Anthology, edited by Peter Kahn, Ravi Shankar and Patricia Smith, have been added to the list of the very few poetry anthologies that have been included in the New York Times Book Review. The review was graciously written by Claudia Rankine, author of Citizen. Below is an excerpt:
"In honor of the centennial year of her birth, two anthologies have arrived: Revise the Psalm, edited by Quraysh Ali Lansana and Sandra Jackson-Opoku; and The Golden Shovel Anthology, edited by Peter Kahn, Ravi Shankar and Patricia Smith. In their shared mission, these books complement each other without too much overlap."
