Give birth to brightness; a thematic study in neo-Black literature by Sherley Anne Williams( Book )

9 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of black writers in America, and it calls attention to the recent trend away from the traditional attitudes of black writers, which involved writing about their experiences in terms of a white audience. This regenesis is the rebirth of black literature and the concurrent rebirth of the attitude and actions of the black people with respect to their social, and moral, and economic relationship to the combined black and white community. The black leader, the black hero, and the black rebel protagonist became synonymous in writings and real life. Exemplary writings of James Baldwin, LeRoi Jones, and Ernest J. Gaines depict the evolution/revolution being stimulated and communicated to the rest of society through music, musicians, poetry, literature, and the theater. In addition to the writings contained in this book, a bibliography of the works of these and other authors is included under the following breakdown: fiction, drama, autobiographies, poetry, anthologies, and history (social).
