This chapter explores the poetic works of Angela Jackson during the later years of the Black Arts Movement (BAM). Jackson’s first two poetry collections VooDoo/Love Magic (1974) and The Greenville Club (1977) assessed the influence of the goals and imperatives set upon by the BAM in its later years. The chapter explains that Jackson’s works showed the reinvention of BAM aesthetics which influenced her work well into the new postrace era. These allowed her to delve deeper in the ideals of Pan-Africanism.

Keywords:   poetry, Angela Jackson, Black Arts Movement, Pan-Africanism, aesthetics, VooDoo/Love Magic, The Greenville Club
