Are There Seats at the Round Table?: An Examination of Black Characters in Heroic Fantasy.
Smith, Vicky
New Advocate, v13 n4 p333-45 Fall 2000
Examines whether Black characters in four children's or young adult quest fantasy novels are viable, three-dimensional characters, and whether the race of the author affects their portrayal. Discusses why there are so few Black characters in fantasy novels. Argues that publishers must seek out and publish quality fantasy manuscripts that feature Black protagonists because young readers deserve them. (SR)
