This examination of current black literature deepens appreciation of black literary traditions and relates literary expression to social struggle. The spirit of Harlem and its people is evoked by excerpts from Hughes, Cullen and McKay. Selections from Brooks, Horne and Walker, with a discussion of "Native Son" by Richard Wright, illustrate changes in black literature after the Harlem Renaissance.
