Sweet Solitude (2010)
by Leonard A. Slade Jr.

Drawing deeply from the well of the African American experience, Professor of Africana Studies Leonard A. Slade Jr.'s new book of poetry, Sweet Solitude, addresses a wide variety of subjects — from beauty, family and nature, to racism, religion, and politics. Underneath it all is the constant theme of love, faith, and the human need to be connected to others.

This volume contains new and previously uncollected poems as well as selections from the author's 13 other books of poetry.
