MODERN BLACK LITERATURE
From Black Renaissance to 1970
edited by
Dr. S. Okechukwu Mezu

Thirteen professors from three continents examine critical developments and trends in African, black American and West Indian poetry, drama and fiction, from black Renaissance to Negritude, from black autobiography to the folk and Calypso tradition in American and West Indian literature. Two chapters advance ideas about darkening the curriculum through a comparative study of the literatures of expatriation and alienation. Originally a special issue of Black Academy Review.
