African American Literature Book Set

$ 395.00

This collection of works includes authors who, through brilliant writing and incisive social commentary, challenged – and changed – the way we view our country’s established traditions. Together, they showcase important highlights of 19th and 20th century African-American literature.

The custom jackets feature a reproduction of “The Library,” a painting by Jacob Lawrence thought to depict the 135th Street Library in Harlem. All seven books in the set are hardcover editions.

Includes: Essays by James Baldwin, autobiographies by Frederick Douglass, writings by W.E.B Du Bois, collected autobiographies by Maya Angelou, novels and stories by Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon, and later works by Richard Wright.
