Dr. Adenike Davidson’s, The Black Nation Novel: Imagining Homeplaces in Early African American Literature is now available.
Published by Third World Press, Dr. Davidson’s new book offers a look at important African American novels from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. She examines the idea that many Black Nationalist themes were found in these novels and provided a model for many of the ideas that would surface in the African American literature and culture of the 1960s and 1970s.
Dr. Davidson is associate professor of English and director of the Fisk University W.E.B. DuBois honors program. To find out more about her work, click here.
