Step Into A World

"Kevin Powell is pushing to bring, as he has so brilliantly donebefore, the voices of his generation: the concerns, the cares, thefears, and the fearlessness. Step into a World is a kaleidoscopeinto the world not bound by artificial constructs like nation. JohnColtrane recorded 'Giant Steps,' which is a riff on the sight andsounds in his muse. Powell plays the computer with equalastuteness." -Nikki Giovanni

"Those of us who pay attention were aware that the youngergeneration of black writers was being smothered by the anointmentof talented tenth Divas and Divuses, and their commercialaccommodationist 'Fourth Renaissance. 'This anthology is indeed abreakthrough! It combines the boldness and daring of hip-hop withthe intellectual keenness of a Michele Wallace or a Clyde Taylor."-Ishmael Reed

"In a culture where videos, the Internet, and other high-techcommunication is being consumed like the latest mind-altering drug,how does great literature grow and survive? These writers willanswer that all-important question. This anthology provides a clue,a hint, as to where we might be going. They are resisting all thisvacant, empty-minded nothingness. Read them. Listen to them. If youdon't, you do so at your peril." -Quincy Troupe
