Abstract: Henry Louis Gates, Jr., critic and commentator on African American literature, suggests two crucial points promoting the continuance of African American literature throughout the century and the interwoven nature of race and writing. First, "race" personified depends largely on the group's perception of itself and how it expresses those ideas through writing; and secondly, the literature produced by African Americans shape the way in which their people evolve by establishing a medium that African American people can look at as documents of their history - their history that was essentially stripped from them, suppressed, and eventually recreated and expressed through traditional oral delivery and the written word.
