about this item

This study investigates the relationship between Christianity and African American literary history. Discussion ranges from well-known writers, such as W. E. B. Du Bois and Zora Neale Hurston, to less-known writers including Frederick Cullen, Reverdy Ransom, Nella Larson, Oscar Micheaux, and Countee Cullen. The study chronicles how African American intellectuals sought to negotiate their entanglement with black religion, particularly black Christianity, demonstrating that some Harlem Renaissance writers were openly hostile to Christianity.
