Cynthia Manick (editor)
This anthology celebrates five years of Soul Sister Revue, a quarterly reading series for established and emerging poets who write in the narrative tradition of storytelling. The series was formed by poet Cynthia Manick to see diversity on stage, to promote storytelling, and to celebrate Soul in all its forms. In this anthology, two poets from each Soul Sister Revue performance contribute a poem and answers the question What does Soul mean to you? Soul Sister Revue premiered in March 2014 in New York City and can be found at https://www.soulsisterrevue.com/.

Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday, Langston Hughes, Son House, Gwendolyn Brooks, Marvin Gaye, and many other great men and women are celebrated in this volume as the contributors "respond" to their works, lives, loves, pain, and joy.
