The Cambridge Companion to American Civil Rights Literature brings together leading scholars to examine the significant traditions, genres, and themes of civil rights literature. While civil rights scholarship has typically focused on documentary rather than creative writing, and political rather than cultural history, this Companion addresses the gap and provides university students with a vast introduction to an impressive range of authors, including Richard Wright, Lorraine Hansberry, Gwendolyn Brooks, James Baldwin, Amiri Baraka, and Toni Morrison. Accessible to undergraduates and academics alike, this Companion surveys the critical landscape of a rapidly growing field and lays the foundation for future studies.If ablacka became a way to label, marginalize, and deny rights to a certain segment of the U.S. population during the Jim Crow era, then how does that label ... The publication of a Cambridge Companion to American Civil Rights Literature does not intend to close out conversation on the topic. Quite the opposite: this gathering of selected essays makes clear how much ground remains to be covered.
