Dudley Randall (January 14, 1914 – August 5, 2000) was an African-American poet and poetry publisher from Detroit, Michigan.
- And as I groped in darkness
and felt the pain of million,
gradually, like day driving night across the continent,
I saw dawn upon them like the sun a vision
of a time when all men walk proudly through the earth
and the bombs and missiles lie at the bottom of the ocean
like the bones of dinosaurs buried under the shale of eras,
and men strive with each other not for power or the
accumulation of paper
but in joy create for others the house, the poem, the game
of athletic beauty.
- "Roses and Revolutions"
