In the first of four volumes, Jackson (English, North Carolina) divides early Afro-American literature into an Age of Apprenticeship, during which blacks were learning to express themselves in a foreign tongue, and an Age of Abolitionists, in which they found a voice to protest their conditions. Covers slave narratives, poetry, sermons, histories, folk literature (including spirituals), and novels, by known and unknown authors. Includes a 50-page bibliographic essay.
