This book reads black historical novels and poetry as an invitation to re-examine the multiple archives that have produced our historical consciousness. It shows that black historical literature takes us back to the archive, exposing the instability of the archive’s truth claim to highlight how it is culturally constructed and open to hermeneutics, suggesting that the references to archival documents in black historical literature introduce a new methodology for studying both the archive and literature.
