The Schomburg Library of Nineteenth-Century Black Women Writers

General Editor: HENRY LOUIS GATES, JR.

Oxford University Press, in collaboration with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, a research unit of The New York Public Library, rescued the voice of an entire segment of the black tradition by offering volumes of compelling and rare works of fiction, poetry, autobiography, biography, essays, and journalism, written by nineteenth-century black women. Responding to the wide recognition this series has received, Oxford now presents four more of these volumes in paperback (to add to the eight already available). Each book contains an introduction written by an expert in the field, as well as an overview by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the General Editor.
