A biographical/critical study of three Harlem Renaissance poets -- Angelina Weld GrimkA(c), Alice Dunbar-Nelson, and Georgia Douglas Johnson -- during a rich and colorful period. Writing from a black feminist critical perspective, Hull recovers these black foremothers and in the process shakes up the traditional black literary canon.
