Pub. Date:
In poems, stories, memoirs and essays about colour and culture, prejudice and love, and feminine trials, dozens of African-American women writers - some famous, many just discovered - give us a sense of a distinct inner voice and an engagement with their larger double culture. Harlem's Glory unfolds a tradition of writing by African-American women, hitherto mostly hidden, in the first half of the 20th century. In historical context, with special emphasis on matters of race and gender, are the words of luminaries like Zora Neale Hurston and Georgia Douglas Johnson as well as writings by figures like Angelina Weld Grimke, Elise Johnson McDougald and Regina Andrews, all culled from archives and arcane magazines.
