New Anthology of Black Writing

Time Out Chicago reviews Black Writing from Chicago, a recently published anthology of local African-American authors from the past and present, and calls it a "heady mix of old-school agitprop and literary wonderment, a testimony not only to the multitude of great black writers who were born or passed through here, but to the myriad forms literature may take." Read the full review online. You can also find out more about the book from the Southern Illinois University Press.
