Explorations in Sights and Sounds
The Minority Presence in American Literature: 1600-1900, volumes I and II, is the first publication of the Morgan State University Series in Afroamerican Studies. The series is intended to provide a basis for examining the cultural, religious and social experiences of Afroamericans. Each title in the series is intended to serve as a guide, outline, or syllabus for college courses in Afroamerican studies, American ethnic studies, history and culture, American literature, and American studies. In keeping with these aims, Philip Butcher has compiled two anthologies of major and minor American writings that can be used as readers and course guides. The selections explore the experiences of Native Americans, Afroamericans, European and Chinese immigrants in the New World between the seventeenth and early twentieth centuries.
