Black poet Michael Harper, a teacher at California State College at Hayward, was in town this past week to read some of his poetry at Pioneer and Huron High schools and at the University of Michigan. At the high schools, his visit was sponsored by the "Poetry Ann Arbor" group. Several other poets have already done readings this fall at Ann Arbor secondary schools. This photo was taken at Huron High. Harper's first book poetry was published this year and was entitled "Dear John, Dear Coltrane." A second book of poetry is coming out in 1971. Many of Harper's poems have been published in "Poetry," "Poetry Northwest," "Negro Digest," "Southern Review" and other magazines.
