9780130141224: Heritage: African American Readings for Writers: African American Readings for Writing

For developmental courses in reading and writing; and for any level courses in Humanities, Literature, African-American Literature, and African-American Studies.

Unique in its perspective and range, this developmental reader uses diverse essays, short stories, poems and plays by and about African Americans to stimulate student critical reading, thinking, discussion, and writing. It first provides a comprehensive process-oriented writing guide, and then offers a diverse collection of readings that provide models and reflect the rich heritage of African American culture. The readings explore 18 themes and will appeal to a broad spectrum of students—both traditional and non-traditional.

From the Back Cover:

The first edition of HERITAGE: AFRICAN AMERICAN READINGS FOR WRITING was praised as a great resource for students who come to college with a limited knowledge of the African-American experience. Instructors and students appreciated the diversity of writers in the first edition, which showed that African-American writers and African-American people have a lot in common.

Most important, however, is HERITAGE has become a proven text that prods students to think and write with confidence.

Features of HERITAGE, Second Edition include:
  • Over 20 new readings, including works from Queen Latifah, Gloria Naylor, Alice Walker, W.E.B. DuBois; and Maya Angelou.
  • A process-oriented approach to writing highlighted by early chapters on planning, writing, and revising and editing.
  • A combination of essays, fiction, poems, and student essays in each chapter.
  • A section of longer and more challenging supplementary readings at the end of the text.
  • A brief biographical sketch of the author introducing each reading.
