Abstract
June Jordan was a poet and former professor of English at Stony Brook University. She begins the interview by reading her poem,“A Poem about Intelligence for My Brothers and Sisters.” She continues the interview by discussing how she first became a poet, and talks about her own political poetry and political poetry as a genre. She then talks about the situation in South Africa during the time period of this interview. Jordan briefly touches on her future literary plans and her contribution to literature as a black female writer, and ends the interview by discussing her criticism with the feminist movement.
