Summary
"This book examines works of African American mystery writers within the social and historical contexts of African American literature on crime and justice. Chapters cover the movement by Black authors from slave narratives and antebellum newspapers to fiction writing; the transition from early genre writers to protest writers of the 1940s and 1950s"--Provided by publisher
