Hollis Robbins: The Portable Nineteenth-Century African American Women Writers

The Ivy Bookshop

The Portable Nineteenth-Century African American Women Writers is the most comprehensive anthology of its kind, featuring an extraordinary range of voices and expressions from African American women in print before, during, and after the Civil War. Edited by Hollis Robbins and Henry Louis Gates, Jr., this collection comprises work from fifty-two African American women from across America, who tell their stories of success and suffering, of outrage and overcoming, to friends and to the world.

This is the latest addition to the African-American classics series under the general editorship of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Previous titles have included Twelve Years a Slave (Solomon Northup) and The Light of Truth (Ida B. Wells and Mia Bay).
Hollis Robbins is Chair of the Humanities Department at Peabody Institute and Director of the Center for Africana Studies at Johns Hopkins University. She was recently named the 2017-2018 Delta Delta Delta Fellow at the National Humanities Center in Research Triangle Park, NC.

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. is Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and founding Director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard University. Emmy-Award-winning filmmaker, literary scholar, journalist, cultural critic, and institution builder, Professor Gates has authored or co-authored twenty-one books and created fifteen documentary films.
