There are a total of nine contributors to this Anthology. All are immigrants from Africa to America, except two people; Cyril Obi and Chinwe Azubike, who live and work in Europe. The collection thus is a reflection of sundry temperaments in poetic art. Non of the writers is indeed writing for the first time.
They have all had poems and other forms of writings published in some form of media. However, non also has as yet become towering. Their poems are rich in personal and collective experiences and artistic devices. While some are urbane, some still exhume the rural qualities of African life and yet others achieve a blend of both the urban and the rural. In all, the poems are interesting and the annotations make an understanding of the collection a lot easier.
