This book restores Albery Allson Whitman's place in the canons of African-American literature and nineteenth-century American poetry. Albery Allson Whitman (1851-1901), born the child of slaves in Kentucky, made his livelihood as a preacher in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. He also produced a prodigious amount of poetry. Many of these works - replete with 'mulatto' figures and vignettes about black, Native, and white subjects in the frontier spaces of the Midwest and Florida - prefigure current preoccupations in literary and cultural studies. This collection includes selections from all of his major narrative poems, along with other poems, letters, and a sermon. By collecting and republishing these works - many of which have been out of print for more than a century - this volume restores Whitman's place in the canons of African-American literature and nineteenth-century American poetry as one of the most important post - Civil War African American writers.
