From Our Editors

The enthusiastic reception by students, scholars, and the general public to the 1988 publication of the Schomburg Library of Nineteenth-Century Black Women Writers more than justified the efforts of twenty-five scholars and the staff of the Black Periodical Literature Project to piece together the fragments of knowledge about the writings of African-American women between 1773 and 1910. The Library's republication of those writings in thirty volumes-ranging from the poetry of Phillis Wheatley to the enormous body of work that emerged out of the 'Black Woman's Era' at the turn of this century-was a beginning for the restoration of the written sensibilities of a group of writers who confronted the twin barriers of racism and sexism in America.
