This critical anthology explores the global literature of the African world as a unit whose chartable African heritage is coupled with the diversities and adaptations of post-enslavement and post-colonial experiences. The text has a seminal introduction that defines comparative black literature by examining how mainstream studies have marginalized literatures of Africa and the diaspora by not grouping them as a unit that reflects the historical continuum of the global African literary endeavor. The volume excerpts literature from vast representatives of the African world and introduces critical foundations that lead students to reflect on commonalities and divergences of global African literatures, as well as the more practical exercises of writing and analysis.
