Cultural Strangulation: Black Literature and the White Aesthetic
Gayle, Addison, Jr.
Negro Digest, 18, 9, 32-39, 69 Jul
Traces the association of white with goodness and purity, and black with evil and sinisterism in English and American literature. The refusal of white critics to recognize a distinct black aesthetic accounts for their blindness to the literary merits of the works of Black authors. (KG)
