Carter, George E., Ed.; And Others
The conference papers presented in this volume focus on the urban experience as reflected in minority literature. The essays deal with the works of contemporary Afro-American, Chicano, and Puerto Rican writers. The central theme of these papers is the struggle for survival and cultural identity in American cities. Particular attention is given to the dilemma faced by racial minorities who are confronted with racism as well as alienation. Specific literature discussed includes childrens' poetry, short stories, novels, black poetry, sociological literature, and journal articles. (EB)
