[AFRICAN AMERICAN LITERATURE] BROWN, Sterling
The Negro in American Fiction (Bronze Booklet Number 6)
Washington, D.C. The Associates in Negro Folk Education, 1937. First Edition. Very nice association between Sterling Brown, a leading figure of the Harlem Renaissance, and Johnson, a pioneering folklorist and sociologist of African-American music and culture. Johnson (1901-1991) was associated with the Institute for Research in Social Science at the University of North Carolina from 1924 until his retirement in the late 1960s. Small octavo (21cm). Original decorated wrappers; 209pp. Inscribed on title page: "For Guy Johnson/with best wishes/Sterling Brown," undated but apparently contemporary. Bit of mild external wear, else Near Fine.
