Sterling A. Brown: Building the Black Aesthetic Tradition
Sterling A. Brown's achievement and influence in the field of American literature and culture are unquestionably significant. His poetry has been translated into Spanish, French, German, and Russian and has been read in literary circles throughout the world. He is also one of the principal architects of black criticism. His critical essays and books are seminal works that give an insider's perspective of literature by and about blacks. Leopold Sedar Senghor, who became familiar with Brown's poetry and criticism in the 1920s and 1930s, called him "an original militant of Negritude, a precursor of our movement." Yet Joanne V. Gabbin's book, originally published in 1985, remains the only study of Brown's work and influence. Gabbin sketches Brown's life, drawing on personal interviews and viewing his achievements as a poet, critic, and cultural griot. She analyzes in depth the formal and thematic qualities of his poetry, revealing his subtle adaptation of song forms, especially the blues. To articulate the aesthetic principles Brown recognized in the writings of black authors, Gabbin explores his identification of the various elements that have come together to create American culture.

After receiving a botched proposal from Romero, Taiwan sees an opening to leave her sugar daddy and seizes it, once she’s landed back in her home city. Her heart is telling her this is the best decision to make for her happiness, while her heart is also telling her this won't be the last she sees of Romero. Any worries she has dissolve at the appearance of Frank, whose crazy demeanor brings about a strong surge of nostalgia. Taiwan’s main reason for leaving the comfort of her Italian paradise is to build a family of her own. Her only worry is that Romero may come after her to take her back to Italy. The question is will she return and accept the security that comes with being a kept woman or chase what her heart desires? Frank is on high alert when it comes to Alex. With the current stress of his relationship wearing him out, Frank is happy to see Taiwan, who hasn’t changed a bit since they last saw each other. He expects her sudden appearance to bring out the worst in Alex but is pleasantly surprised when she makes a proposition that Frank can't refuse. Frank is open to the idea of having his cake and eating it too, so open that he can't see the plan Alex has brewing for the unsuspecting pair. Kharisma has come up with a foolproof plan for the trio to secure the bag and walk away unscathed. The problem is will they be able to, knowing they will leave behind a trail of broken hearts? Rubee and Bash’s relationship is on a steep decline, especially with all the time she's been spending with Kade. Kade is loving the attention he's receiving from Rubee, but he's tired of sharing her with a man that doesn’t deserve her. In the end, Rubee is faced with an ultimatum: Bash or Kade. The choice shouldn’t be too hard to make—especially with Bash continuously moving funny—but the decision is enough to make Rubee pause. However, when Rubee starts investigating the father of her child, she makes a startling discovery that flips the script and is enough to change the game. Will Rubee choose the level-headed Kade, or will she continue her tumultuous love affair with Bash that is guaranteed to have her go insane?
Using oral history and the printed word, Sterling A. Brown set out during the Second World War to capture the response of African Americans, primarily living in the South, to America's involvement in the war and how it affected them. These responses, brought together in extended, non-fiction essays of many different types, illustrate the diversity of opinions in the Black South about the war and the war period in America. For nearly sixty years, the excerpts that were never published languished in Brown's manuscript collection at Howard University. Now, for the first time, all of the completed pieces of unpublished writings are combined with the few published sections into the book that Brown envisioned. The legacy Brown left us is not only a superb portrait of the way in which African Americans of the mid-century talked and lived; he also provided a methodology that oral and written historians will find extremely useful. This is clearly a document from another time, as its now outdated title reminds us, but it reveals a world that still informs our sense of ourselves as a nation. In fact, it is an unforgettable history, which Brown has cast in a bright, elucidating new light.
