Black on Black: Twentieth-Century African American Writing about Africa

The author of this work uses the concept of Ethianopianism - the biblically-inspired belief that black Americans would lead Africans and people of the diaspora to a bright future - to offer an analysis of the African-American literary response to Africa.

Black on Black provides the first comprehensive analysis of the modern African American literary response to Africa, from W.E.B. Du Bois's The Souls of Black Folks to Alice Walker's The Color Purple.
