Poets & Writers City Guides by Ifeanyi Mentiki
"Looking at Boston, I think of the story of Afaa Michael Weaver, a black man and a poet who lives in the area and teaches at Simmons College. It is a story that reminds us of the reasons why literature still matters. Born in Baltimore, with poverty all around him...Weaver’s story is the story of one man, but also the story of literature. The American is there, so is the black American. The global is also there, by way of the Chinese. And it is a Boston story all the way."
