Riassunto: "Pays an impressive tribute to the new renaissance in African-American literature." --New York Times Book Review "The cultural and literary achievements of black American women are examined and celebrated in some 20 enjoyable, erudite essays by prominent scholars, critics, and activists." --Publishers Weekly This book is the first comprehensive collection of critical and theoretical essays to explore the literary and multi-cultural traditions of Black American women in many genres over a broad span of time.
