Overview

Was Huck Black?: Mark Twain and African-American Voices by Shelley Fisher Fishkin

In this book I will suggest that Twain himself and the critics have ignored or obscured the African-American roots of his art. Critics, for the most part, have confined their studies of the relationship between Twain; 's work and African-American traditions to examinations of his depiction of African-American folk beliefs or to analyses of the dialects spoken by his black characters.
