Two works by the Canadian-born Theodore Henry Shackelford, both printed in Philadelphia. The second title, a supplement to the first, is unrecorded in OCLC and was likely printed in a very small run. Shackelford published one other collection of verse, My Country and Other Poems. Shackelford’s work was anthologized in Negro Poets and their Poems. He was a graduate of the Industrial Training School in Downington, Pennsylvania. Though he was Canadian-born, his grandparents were enslaved in the southern United States. He studied at the Philadelphia Art Museum, possibly during the period when he published these two works. He died in 1923 in Jamaica, New York.
