Arranged chronologically, this volume sweeps the entire history of African-American women's short story writing since its beginning in 1859. The bold outburst of fiction that has followed is brilliantly collected here in a rich anthology that includes the work of Dorothy West, Rita Dove, Maxine Clair, and many others.
