Black Autobiography: The Identity Quest

To study the quest for identity and order in black autobiography and autobiographical writings, from 1789 to 1975. The black personality confronts on the one hand, the institutions of a free society and on the other the institution of slavery; this creates the double-consciousness of Blacks, a problem with which they had to deal in their autobiographical efforts.
