Black on White: A Critical Survey of Writing by American Negroes.
Littlejohn, David
Concerned with why and how the white American might read recent American Negro literature, this book concentrates on the nature of Negro literature. Chapters discuss (1) Negro literature before the publication of Richard Wright's "Native Son" in 1940, including writings before, during, and after the Harlem Renaissance of 1923 to 1933; (2) contemporary Negro playwrights and poets; (3) three leading novelists--Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, and James Baldwin; and (4) contemporary Negro novelists of lesser importance.
