Two Traditions in Afro-American Literature.
Haslam, Gerald W.
California English Journal, v6 n2 p7-21 Apr 1970
Afro-American poets, dramatists, and prose writers have been affected by the tension between traditional African oral modes and various European-American written genres, as well as by the merger of "white taste and black need," which can be seen by examining the styles and themes of black literature in America from Lucy Terry's 1746 poem "Bar's Fight" to the present day "Soul On Ice."
