Read full description of the books:
"Words and images come together in this collaboration between poet Ntozake Shange and Kamoinge Inc., a group of photographers whose work documents and celebrates the African-American experience." In 1963, Roy DeCarava - renowned photographer and first president of the Kamoinge Workshop - set the aesthetic and philosophical tone of the group in response to biased representations of African Americans in the media. As image-makers, the Kamoinge members have sought to shed positive light on their subjects, and to demystify Black life in America. With images from such acclaimed photographers as Anthony Barboza, Adger W. Cowans, Ming Smith Murray, and poems by Ntozake Shange, The Sweet Breath of Life is a book destined to become a classic work of American photography and literature.
