The acts of violence perpetrated on African slaves brought to America resulted in an erasure of their identity, history, and memory. Early African American writers created a black literary and cultural identity by retrieving, recording, and interpreting fragments of the African culture that survived the years of slavery. In his readings of early slave narratives and novels, Twagilimana investigates the writers' use of such literary strategies as humility, intertextuality, mimicry, reversal, abrogation, and appropriation.
