This panel will explore the connection between Marxism and African
American literature. Black writers who were involved with leftist
movements during the early part of the twentieth century included Claude
McKay, Chester Himes, Richard Wright and Ralph Ellison. Proposals that
explore the ways race complicated the role of the black writers involved
in leftist movements, and the ways these political movements influenced
their work are welcomed. Kristin Moriah, McGill University
