This selection of the writings of the influential African American critic and poet Sterling A. Brown (1901-1989) demonstrates his critical acumen and commitment to inclusive politics. The book contains three groupings of essays, focusing in turn on African American political issues, literature, and music, and concludes with a selection of Brown's literature and film reviews. These writings consistently point out the biases against black Americans in white cultural expression and argue for a recognition of the cultural contributions of African Americans.
