Moreover, the most widely used anthologies of black writing have established a canon based largely on current interests and priorities. Seeking to establish a broader perspective, this collection brings together a wealth of autobiographical writings, fiction, poetry, speeches, sermons, essays, and journalism that better portrays the intellectual and cultural debates, social and political struggles, and community publications and institutions that nurtured black writers from the early 1800s to the eve of the Harlem Renaissance. As editor Ajuan Mance notes, previous collections have focused mainly on writing that found a significant audience among white readers. Consequently, authors whose work appeared in African American-owned publications for a primarily black audience--such as Solomon G. Brown, Henrietta Cordelia Ray, and T. Thomas Fortune--have faded from memory. Even figures as celebrated as Frederick Douglass and Paul Laurence Dunbar are today much better known for their "cross-racial" writings than for the larger bodies of work they produced for a mostly African American readership. There has also been a tendency in modern canon making, especially in the genre of autobiography, to stress antebellum writing rather than writings produced after the Civil War and Reconstruction. Similarly, religious writings--despite the centrality of the church in the everyday lives of black readers and the interconnectedness of black spiritual and intellectual life--have not received the emphasis they deserve. Filling those critical gaps with a selection of 143 works by 65 writers, Before Harlem presents as never before an in-depth picture of the literary, aesthetic, and intellectual landscape of nineteenth-century African America and will be a valuable resource for a new generation of readers."--cProvided by publisher. a"This anthology presents underappreciated works by African Americans active throughout the nineteenth century.

Brown, H. Cordelia Ray, and T. Thomas Fortune. Mance's intention for this volume is to offer an alternative to the Norton and Houghton Mifflin anthologies that emphasize only the canonical works of African American literature in the 19th century and to introduce students--and even professors--to a variety of writings, from poetry to journalism, by African Americans who have yet to receive their due"--cProvided by publisher. aIncludes bibliographical references (pages 677-684) and index. 0aAmerican literaturexAfrican American authors. 0aAmerican literaturey19th century. 0aAfrican AmericansvLiterary collections. 7a2017NEWAPRIL.2local1 aMance, Ajuan Maria,eeditor. aCSS0 0Z301008742755000010bCSScGENoBOOKd01fNrSYS60-009245230n0hPS508.N3iM34 2016aMnDuStS3Book4St. Scholastica Library5GENERAL -- 2ND AND 3RD FLOORS6General aCSS50bCSScGENERAL -- 2ND AND 3RD FLOORSdPS508.N3 M34 2016eavailabletAvailablef1g0hNi0jGENk0
