The Norton anthology of African American literature

Abstract: The second edition of this landmark anthology brings together the work of 120 writers in the most comprehensive collection of African American writing available. Representing over 250 years of writing in all genres, the second edition offers eleven major works in their entirety. Nine writers are newly included, among them Jupiter Hammon, Martin Delany, Caryl Phillips, Colson Whitehead, and Harryette Mullen. The anthology opens with a generous section of blues, spirituals, jazz, hip-hop, sermons, and speeches, many of which are brought to life on the expanded two-CD set which includes vocal and instrumental pieces from ragtime to Motown, and twenty-four speeches, readings, and performances by powerful voices from Booker T. Washington to Rita Dove. With a general introduction by Henry Louis Gates Jr., updated period introductions, head-notes, and bibliographies, "The Norton Anthology of African American Literature, Second Edition," reflects the latest scholarship in this vibrant and varied literary tradition.
