Orginal Publication Date
Explorations in Sights and Sounds
The centrality of black women's fiction writers may have been a fact before the publication of Pryse's and Spiller's compilation, but this critical anthology establishes such fiction as a main literary current of late 20th century American literature. The writers included do more than enlighten; they exorcise racist and sexist stereotypes and restore many authors to rightful places of recognition where male critics (black and white) failed to place them.
