In Living Color Book Set - MTO
In the year 1773, the book Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral, made Phillis Wheatley the first African American woman to become a published writer. Uniting Wheatley’s collected works with important 20th-century African American literature, including Invisible Man, A Raisin in the Sun, and The Color Purple, readers can appreciate the impact her works have had on generations of writers. Featuring an original painting of Wheatley by Denver-based artist Detour (Thomas Evans), Juniper Books’ custom-printed jackets will make this important collection the centerpiece of your library.
The hardcover books are published by The Modern Library, Harcourt Inc., George Braziller Inc., and Oxford University Press.
