The Earliest African American Literatures: A Critical Reader (Book)
Title: The Earliest African American Literatures: A Critical Reader
Editor: Zachary McLeod Hutchins
Editor: Cassander L. Smith
Abstract: "With the publication of the 1619 Project by The New York Times in 2019, a growing number of Americans have become aware that Africans arrived in North America before the Pilgrims. Yet the stories of these Africans and their first descendants remain ephemeral and inaccessible for both the general public and educators. This groundbreaking collection of thirty-eight biographical and autobiographical texts chronicles the lives of literary black Africans in British colonial America from 1643 to 1760 and offers new strategies for identifying and interpreting the presence of black Africans in this early period"
