Chadwyck-Healey Editorial Statement: The bibliographic source for the Database of African-American Poetry is Afro-American Poetry and Drama, 1760-1975 by W. P. French et al. The general policy has been to use first editions whenever possible; later editions were selected if they were more inclusive. Where poems appeared in their original dialect in an earlier edition and standardised in a later edition, both forms have been included. Poems originally published in periodicals have also been included. Textual apparatus and front matter to the poems are generally ommitted, except the poet's own notes, which are included in the database.
