Campbell analyzes fourteen literary words written over more than a century, from William Wells Brown's 'Clotel' (1853) to David Bradley's 'The Chaneysville Incident' (1981). She shows that this fiction celebrates blacks' efforts to preserve their humanity and also permits black authors to act as revisionist historians, offering a transcendent view of the future
