Callaloo Faces

Perhaps the central problem of the writers of the Black Arts Movement was their willingness to enclose themselves too tightly in their blackness and make it the subject of their work, rather than using racial identity to raise larger questions about modern or postmodern humanity, while still challenging the politics and power of White America.

-- Charles Henry Rowell, Editor's Notes
