Henry Louis Gates Jr.
“The connections between the slave trade and its abolition in the United States and England have been amply documented. Those between African Americans and Celtic peoples and cultures, however, remain under-explored. Black Skin, Blue Books begins with a comparative chapter on the Victorian era in Wales and African America, before moving on to modernism and to the connections between Paul Robeson, Ralph Ellison, and the Welsh. It fills a void that most of us did not even know existed! This compelling and well-researched book is a major, fresh contribution to Black Atlantic Studies.”
