Description
 
Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (ed); William L. Andrews (ed). In the 18th century, a small group of black men met the challenge of the Enlightenment by mastering the arts & sciences & writing themselves into history. Now known as the Black Atlantic writers, their autobiographies, published in the late 18th & early 19th centuries, not only defied the popular opinion of the time that blacks were unfit for letters, but inaugurated the Black American & Black British literary traditions. This is the first anthology to include the complete texts of the 5 most important influential narratives of the 18th century. Included here are the writings of James Albert Ukawsaw Gronniosaw, John Marrant, Ottobah Cugoano, Olaudah Equiano, & John Jea. Their resonant stories are landmarks in the history of autobiography & human rights.
