STERLING BROWN TO THOMAS TALLEY CORRESPONDENCE, 1941.
- STERLING BROWN TO THOMAS TALLEY CORRESPONDENCE, 1941. Three letters from Sterling Brown (acclaimed Black writer and Howard literature professor) to Prof. Thomas Talley of Fisk (Black literature scholar and author of "Negro Folk Rhymes") asking permission to quote from Talley's work in "The Negro Caravan" , a famous book edited by Brown and others and a landmark compendium of Black literature up to the 1940's. Apparently, the two literary titans could not agree since Talley wanted to publish his work separately but finally gave permission to have some of it appear in Negro Caravan. It was a tussle for a while however. A remarkable and important inside view of how the publication of Black literature was negotiated by Black scholars in the 1940s. The content is of surpassing interest and importance and is unlikely to appear again. VG (in postmarked envelopes with commentary in an undeterminable hand).
