Description


Examining early African American literature from the perspective of a Black Nationalist literary critic, this analysis explores important novels from the 19th and 20th centuries. The discussion demonstrates that Black Nationalist themes were present in many early novels, prefiguring the themes that would become the centerpiece of the Black Power Movement. One of the few books that examines early African American novels, this definitive exploration of them adds to the discussion of black literature and literary criticism.
