About this book

This collection combines previously unpublished letters between African-American poet Langston Hughes and South-African writers of the 1950s and 1960s with scholarly commentary and criticism. The letters tell a fascinating story of the civil rights movement and apartheid and the struggle to overthrow it.

Reviews

"This is an intriguing and invaluable book. Graham and Walters have unearthed a trove of correspondence which, for many years to come, will be a touchstone for scholars of African-American and African literatures and cultures. The book offers a moving account of the emergence of a transnational dynamic of encouragement and practical support among African diasporic writers." - Rob Nixon, Rachel Carson Professor of English, University of Wisconsin-Madison
