Black Modernism: Black Literary Movement Publications and the Black Aesthetic

The purpose of this digital poster is to analyze the way literary movements and black little magazines influenced canon development in Black American literature, as represented in the Norton Anthology of American Literature. This poster is divided into two sections. The first looks at little magazines and Black American literary movements, and also acts as an online repository of links to digital archives of Black little magazines. The second looks at the Norton Anthology of American Literature in every edition, and charts the inclusion of black American authors from edition to edition.
