Mondo's poetry reflects the sorrow, the sadness, and the pain of the black experience, which has long been associated with overcoming oppression and suffering within the context of the American experience, and, as Mondo would state it: at the hands of white Europeans. Yet, Mondo reminds his readers of the need for African consciousness, and this is a theme that dominates the message of this poet. His life has been a series of struggles, and the search for self-awareness, based on Pan-Africanism, African consciousness, and the tradition of black American protest, cultural awareness, and vision.represented in his body of poetic creations.
