Summary
"Original works, diverse perspectives, and multiple disciplines intersect in A Literary Revolution. This book features much-needed perspectives of people of African descent and delves into those perspectives through the use of literature, film, short stories, poetry, and philosophy. Through various academic disciplines, Sandra M. Grayson provides a wide variety for this remarkable anthology. Contributors to this anthology include activists, award-winning writers, internationally recognized professors, and new scholars, each with their own distinct voice. A Literary Revolution examines significant issues that are generally overlooked or that have not yet been fully explored through the analyses of selected subjects and innovative creative writing. The topics of focus include, exile from South Africa, Americanization, African philosophy, and black writers and filmmakers, among many more."--Jacket
