A beloved and admired poet, critic and teacher, Reginald Shepherd (1963-2008) inspired many with his passionate commitment to poetry, an art he viewed as inextricably connected to history, politics and everyday life. Raised in housing projects in the Bronx, he went on to publish five collections of poetry, two anthologies, and a collection of essays, Orpheus in the Bronx: Essays on Identity, Politics, and the Freedom of Poetry.
