Authors include Phyllis Wheatley, Charles Chesnutt, Harriet Jacobs, Frederick Douglass, Pauline Hopkins, W. E. B. DuBois, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Jessie Fauset, and others. We’ll pay attention to critical, representational, and social concerns like form and structure, gender, community, power, and history.
