Whether in poetry and prose, or fiction and nonfiction, what issues have occupied African American writers and readers? What joy do these writers and readers derive from the written word and oral tradition? Motivated by these questions, this class traces the origins of an African American literary tradition in British North American; charts the circulation of ideas about democracy and citizenship in the nineteenth-century United States; and maps ongoing debates about race and representation today.
