Creation Date



By Margaret Walker, edited by Maryemma Graham University Press of Tennessee (Hardcover: ISBN: 0870499807; Paperback: ISBN: 0870499815, 7/1997) Distinguished poet and novelist Walker figures prominently in the chronicle of contemporary African American literary accomplishments. Collected here for the first time are 30 thought-provoking essays, culled by editor Graham from speeches and other writings spanning six decades of Walker's fertile life. Graham's admirably cohesive arrangement divides these pieces into four sections, dealing with Walker's reflections on her own creative process as well as that of other black women writers; on black culture overall; and the arena of race and politics. A final section delves into educational issues and revolution on college campuses. This collection of essays, from an important voice in American letters, will make a significant addition to literature collections. ―Copyright © 1997, American Library Association.
