black history > BLACK WRITERS ALPHABETICAL INDEX < literature & language arts

Literature - poetry, prose, novels, essays, short stories and plays - by people of color in America, traces its history through oral forms such as spirituals, sermons, blues and rap, exploring the themes of equality, racism and freedom.

Images of authors range from late 18th century writers such as Phillis Wheatley, to the slave narratives of people like Harriet Jacobs and Frederick Douglass, into the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s, and contemporary authors such as Toni Morrison and Maya Angelou.
