Printed on the 50th anniversary of Walker's first published work, "For My People," Catlett's lithographs illustrate Walker's poem, published in 1942, about African-American life in Chicago. Regarding Catlett's art, "Beautifully striking, singularly apt, these are pictures that, while avoiding the literal, empathically complement Margaret Walker's poem." (From the LEC newsletter, #567).
