Harlem Renaissance and post-renaissance African-American Literature

Posted to WritersAndGenres

I was thinking this might be a subject of interest. There is a whole lot of authors that could be represented here, including Langston Hughes, Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, Richard Wright, Zora Neal Hurston, etc. Let's face it, America was never really kind to non-Anglo races, and some of the anger and oppression was beautifully put into words. Would articles on this subject be used on this page? Let me know and give me some suggestions.
