James J. Donahue, Jennifer Ho, and Shaun Morgan

In her landmark study of race and American literature, Playing in the Dark (1992), Toni Morrison argued that literary history has taken for granted a certain set of assumptions, including the understanding that "American literature is free of, uninformed, and unshaped by the four-hundred-year-old presence of, first, Africans and then African Americans in the United States" and that "this presence [...] had no significant place or consequence in the origin and development of that culture's literature" (4-5). Morrison's work provides a thoughtful and insightful study of race in American narrative and has inspired a generation of scholars to continue the study of race and ethnicity in American literature.
