As this volume of photographs presents the faces of acclaimed African American writers, it also highlights the diversity within African American literature and celebrates the many genres it explores.
Over a period of thirty years Lynda Koolish has been photographing African American authors in their homes, at public readings, in universities, and at conferences and festivals. This collection of portraits includes authors of wide range and identity - Caribbean writers who have immigrated to the United States, writers of mixed heritage, writers who proudly proclaim their African roots, playwrights, poets, novelists, critics, scholars, short story writers, oral storytellers, and memoirists.
Koolish's photographs convey a sense of clarity, warmth, and beauty. Along with each portrait she provides a short biographical essay that comprises the artistic vision of the author.
Her gallery of sixty black-and-white photographs presents a grand assembly.
Not since Carl Van Vechten's work featuring Harlem Renaissance writers in the 1920s and 1930s has such a book been devoted exclusively to photographic portraits of African American writers.
