Description

The Works of Alice Dunbar-Nelson offers a unique glimpse at the diverse roots of black women's writing in America. Ranging from autobiographical short stories to poetry, novellas, and journalism, Dunbar-Nelson's powerful work is marked by themes of opposition, difference, and the crossing of racial bounderies that made her work potentially too dangerous for her contemporary readers, but dominate much of writing today.show more
