M. B. Tolson

M. B. Tolson is not a widely recognized author, and there may be some confusion with Melvin B. Tolson, a notable American modernist poet, educator, columnist, and politician. Melvin B. Tolson (1898-1966) was known for his complex, visionary poetry and for his role as a pioneer in African-American literature. He served as the Poet Laureate of Liberia and was a professor at Langston University. His work often addressed issues of race and social justice. If M. B. Tolson refers to a different individual, there is insufficient information available to provide a summary.
