Congrats are due to one of our Afro-Librarians!!!! Dr James B Haile’s Philosophical Mediations on Richard Wright will soon be available in paperback!
The text has been described as “thought-provoking” and “elegant” and esteemed as a compilation of of essays that are integral to the analysis of Wright’s body of work. Haile is not only re-imagining the canon but is creating a new methodology for examining Afro-American literature. It’s no surprise that, in addition to being used in universities around the country, this text is also read by readers varying from scholars to afro-literature lovers and hobbyists.
I recently read through this compilation and was inspired to re-read Wright’s work in its entirety. So if you are also interested in digging deeper and gaining a unique perspective on classic Afro-American and American literature, purchase your copy here:
