The Other Black List: The African American Literary and Cultural Left of the 1950s by Mary Helen Washington
English | 13 Jun. 2014 | ISBN: 0231152701 | 399 Pages | EPUB | 8 MB

Mary Helen Washington recovers the vital role of 1950s leftist politics in the works and lives of modern African American writers and artists. While most histories of McCarthyism focus on the devastation of the blacklist and the intersection of leftist politics and American culture, few include the activities of radical writers and artists from the Black Popular Front.
