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"
