Editorial Reviews

We have a saying in our work that movements begin with the telling of untold stories. The poems in this anthology are some of the very untold stories needed to awaken the American and global public to the urgency for the completion of the Poor People's Campaign Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King launched in the last year of his life. They speak to the ingenuity, creativity, persistence and intelligence poor people of all races, places, genders, and ages demonstrate and need as we work to address poverty in our own lives and communities as well as abolish all poverty for everyone." - Willie Baptist, co-author, Pedagogy of the Poor"A project of the Poverty Initiative of the Union Theological Seminary in New York City,Out of the Depths: Poetry of Poverty, Courage and Resilience is an anthology of over 100 poems by numerous authors. Some are well-known poets, such as Martin Espada and Marilyn Nelson; others are emerging or debut poets. The poems speak of firsthand experience with poverty, with unjustified shame and stigma placed upon the poor, and the will to face life's most crushing challenges. Highly recommended." - Midwest Book Review, (August, 2015)"We have a saying in our work that movements begin with the telling of untold stories.
