Summary

Summary

Previous studies of modern African Americans have either ignored the journey or have interpreted it in very different, usually pessimistic, terms. Contemporary African American Fiction focuses on the journey as a limitless process of renewal, self-creation, and culture building, stressing the persistent vitality of the open journey in African American literature, its wonderfully protean ability to assume an endless series of liberating new forms.
