Summary
This documentary about the Detroit poet and publisher, Naomi Long Madgett, by "filmmaker David B. Schock, Ph.D., chronicles her journey, her struggles, and her achievements. In conversations with Naomi, we learn about the course of her life and the encouragement she received from Langston Hughes and others of the Harlem Renaissance. Poet, scholar, and friend Melba Joyce Boyd is the interlocutor for the primary film interview. In addition, we hear from poets Herbert Woodward Martin, Toi Derricotte, M.L. Liebler, Terry Blackhawk, Jamaal "Versiz" May, Rhonda Welsh, and Naomi's daughter, Jill Witherspoon Boyer. We see and hear Naomi in action, giving readings and commentary on her poems. The film is liberally illustrated with photographs and documents. Along the way, we come to understand Dr. Madgett's prodigious talents, sensibilities, faith, compassion, humor and wit."--www.starbystar.net
