KIRKUS REVIEW

An anthology of stories by American Negroes from 1887 to the present, edited and with an introduction by Langston Hughes, ranges in sound and fury from the comic to the savage, the tender to the violent. Composed of forty-seven stories, it includes contributions from Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, John A. Williams, Richard Wright, Gwendolyn Brooks, Chester B. Himes, and Willard Motley, as well as older and less familiar names such as Charles W. Chesnutt.
