Summary
This volume selects for the first time essays and reviews by the influential African American cultural critic and poet Sterling A. Brown. Like the writings of many of his contemporaries in the New Negro Movement, Brown's work celebrates and fosters a richer appreciation of the complexity and vitality of African American cultural expression. Ranging over topics from folklore to sports, from literature to music, the pioneering essays collected here reflect the major themes and concerns of Brown's career, and together they demonstrate his critical acumen, commitment to inclusive politics, and consummate style.
