0 Reviews
This is a comparative study of two literary movements: the 'Harlem Renaissance' and ngritude, and an effort to revaluate some the existing scholarship on the two movements. The work addresses both the factual errors in the current state of scholarship on the literature, as well as the false claims of a more ideological nature.
