The city in African-American literature( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the words of Alain Locke, the city provided "a new vision of opportunity" for African-Americans that could enable them to move from an enslaving "medieval" world to a modern world containing the possibility of liberation. More recent African-American literature has also been noteworthy for its largely affirmative vision of urban life. Amiri Baraka's 1981 essay "Black Literature and the Afro-American Nation: The Urban Voice" argues that, from the Harlem Renaissance onward, African-American literature has been "urban shaped," producing a uniquely "black urban consciousness." And Toni Morrison, although stressing that the American city in general has often induced a sense of alienation in many African-American writers, nevertheless adds that modern African-American literature is suffused with an "affection" for "the village within" the city. Gwendolyn Brook's poetry and Gloria Naylor's fiction, likewise, celebrate this sense of cultural unity in the black city
Contemporary African American fiction : the open journey by Robert Butler( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book argues that from its very beginnings African American journey narratives are distinctively "non-teleological"; that is, they typically resist being directed toward an end point in a particular place and instead exult in movement through indefinite space. They view movement as intrinsically valuable, a process of endless becoming rather than a carefully mapped journey resulting in a completed state of being rooted in a fixed place. As such, these journeys are a compelling metaphor of the American desire for the "new life" consisting of unlimited personal development. The writers examined in this book offer a unique set of variations on this kind of open journey
The Richard Wright encyclopedia by Jerry Washington Ward( Book )

Richard Wright is one of the most important African American writers. He is also one of the most prolific. Best known as the author of Native Son, he wrote 7 novels; 2 collections of short fiction; an autobiography; more than 250 newspaper articles, book reviews, and occasional essays; some 4,000 verses; a photo-documentary; and 3 travel books. By attacking the taboos and hypocrisy that other writers had failed to address, he revolutionized American literature and created a disturbing and realistic portrait of the African American experience.
