... absorbing biographical study... " —Black Enterprise

Meticulously researched and thoroughly engaging... " —Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature

... a splendid study... excellent... " — Choice

Color, Sex, and Poetry provides both the bread and the meat of critical analysis and exploration of the lives of three Black women writers." —Belles Lettres

... Hull succeeds not only in exploring writers whose work is hampered by their ‘split authorial personalities’ but also in outlining the effects of economic circumstances on literary production." —Signs

A biographical/critical study of three Harlem Renaissance poets—Angelina Weld Grimké, Alice Dunbar-Nelson, and Georgia Douglas Johnson—during a rich and colorful period. Writing from a black feminist critical perspective, Hull recovers these black foremothers and in the process shakes up the traditional black literary canon.
