We're proud to announce that Revise the Psalm has received a New York Times book review by Claudia Rankine, alongside The Golden Shovel Anthology: New Poems Honoring Gwendolyn Brooks (University of Arkansas Press). This is our first NY Times review, and we're are all the more happy to have it be of this book in particular.
Rankine writes that Revise the Psalm is an "expansive response to Brooks . . . we get a keen sense of the poet and her fierce commitment to community engagement," and that "in their shared mission, [Revise the Psalm and The Golden Shovel Anthology] complement each other."
We would like to extend our thanks to the New York Times, to our contributors, our editors Quraysh Ali Lansana and Sandra Jackson-Opoku, to you, our readers, and – of course – to Miss Brooks.
