Among the first African-American writers was Charles W. Chesnutt, who was writing about racism and African identity at the turn of the 20th century. This volume includes his seminal collection of tales, THE CONJURE WOMAN, as well as two important novels, many short stories, and eight of his powerful essays on race in America.
