For a comprehensive critical study and reference resource on The Heritage
Series of Black Poetry (published in London from 1962-1975) and its
publisher/editor Paul Breman, I am seeking contributions and enquiries. The focus of
this book will be the 27 poetry collections published in the Heritage Series,
the Heritage pamphlet series, and the two poetry anthologies _Sixes and Sevens_
and _You Better Believe It_. The collection, which will be distributed
internationally, will include memoirs, poems, critical essays, photographs and
I am seeking critical essays or memoirs on or by the poets included in the
books, pamphlets and anthologies; relevant essays of literary or cultural
criticism relating to the publication of Black poetry from the late 1950s to the
late 1970s; and essays or memoirs focusing on diasporic dialogue amongst
black poets during this era.
