Back cover copy

In addition to resurrecting the works of black women authors, it is our hope that this set will facilitate the resurrection of the Afro-American woman's literary tradition itself by unearthing its nineteenth-century roots.

Review quote

A brilliant example of how to discuss together the issues of both gender and race, one of the first in US American discourse to so approach such matters. * Dr. Imafedia Okhamafe, University of Nebraska * So glad to have this important text available for my course. * Elizabeth Keyser, Hollins College * A very useful and thorough presentation of black woman's lives during the post-reconstruction era. * James N. Upton, Ohio State University * An excellent book....Highly complex but not complicated. * James N. Upton, Ohio State University *
