Summary
"The essays in Teaching African American Women's Writing not only provide reflections on issues, problems and pleasures raised by reading and studying the texts, but crucially they explore and demonstrate strategies for teaching African American women's writing which involve students with the texts, with the cultural, historical, political, gendered issues and with engaged critical reading practices. The book will be of use to those teaching and studying African American women's writing in colleges, universities, and adult education groups"--Provided by publisher.
