Poetry/Fiction/Creative Nonfiction

Tupac Shakur, Toni Morrison, Nicki Giovanni, Richard Wright, and Maya Angelou. These gifted authors are all household names who have put African American literature on the map. However, so many Black writers outside of pop culture have contributed to the lexicon of settings, spaces, imagery, and poetics found in Black literature. Such authors include Henry Dumas, Rita Dove, Lucille Clifton, Christopher Gilbert, Yusef Komunyakaa, and others. Delving into their work is vital to gaining an expansive view of literature and our shared history as Americans.
