African American Women Writers in New Jersey, 1836-2000 is the first and only reference work to identify and document the lives, intellectual contributions, and publications of over one hundred African American women writers in the Garden State from 1836 through 2000. Many, like Jessie Redmon Fauset, Alice Perry Johnson, Sharon Bell Mathis, Ntozake Shange, and Ruby Ora Williams, were born in the state. Others, like Gertrude Pitts, Dorothy Porter Wesley, and Helen Jackson Lee, although not born here, were residents of New Jersey for more than fifteen years, and made significant contributions during that time. This volume contains biographical and bibliographical information for each author. Also included are photographs of many writers as well as citations for published pamphlets, books, reports, and articles written by these women. To give the flavor of some writers' work, Sibyl E. Moses has provided characteristic excerpts from poetry and prose. The two appendixes demarcate the distribution of African American women writers in New Jersey both by city and town and by genre. By identifying the considerable output of these writers, Moses's research expands our knowledge of the literary and printing history of New Jersey, as well as of women's literary history.
