Author Notes:Houston Baker is one of the most persistent voices in African American literary criticism, one that has helped to establish a tradition in black literature from slave narratives and spirituals to blues and modern African American writing. He is a frequent contributor to literary journals, author and editor of numerous books, and a leading mover in the diversification of American literature.
