Blues Vision is a groundbreaking collection of incisive prose and powerful poetry by forty-three black writers who educate, inspire, and reveal the unabashed truth.

The book is co-published by the Minnesota Historical Society and Minnesota Humanities Center, sponsor of this anthology, which was made possible in part by the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on November 4, 2004.

Showcasing the unique vision and reality of Minnesota’s African American community from the Harlem renaissance through the civil rights movement, from the black power movement to the era of hip- hop and the time of America’s first black president, this compelling anthology provides an explosion of artistic expression about what it means to be a Minnesotan.
