Small owner's name ("Sarah & Lloyd Garrison"), dark stain at the bottom margin of the first couple of dozen leaves, else about very good in fair, stained dustwrapper with a long crease tear. Inscribed by Hughes: "Especially for Lloyd - this African book inscribed in Africa - Sincerely, Langston. First Dakar Festival of the Negro in the arts, Senegal, 1966." An important anthology of writing from the "New Africa," and a very personal work to Hughes, who gathered selections "from several thousands of pages of writing by Africans of color that I have read during the past six years" (p.ix). Hughes contributed a six-page introduction to the volume, which included contributions by Peter Abraham, Kwame Nkrumah, J. Benibengor Blay, Cyprian Ekwensi, Ezekiel Mphahlele, Léopold Sédar Senghor, Wolfe Soyinka, Amos Tutuola, and others. An interesting inscription.
