Book Description

Drawing deeply from the well of the African American experience, Leonard Slades poetry addresses a wide variety of subjects and themes, from beauty, family, and nature to racism, religion, and politics. Running throughout, however, are the importance of love, faith, and the human need to be connected to others. Included in Sweet Solitude are new poems, previously uncollected in book form, as well as selections from the authors twelve volumes of previously published poetry. These are poems of celebration and endurance for all readers.
