Negro-African" literature in French is one of a number of appellations most commonly used to describe a body of literary texts written in French by Africans and those of African descent from roughly 1920 onward. Discussing the numerous other terms that have been used to designate the same body of texts ("Colonial" literature, "Black" literature, "literature of Negritude"), Jack explores the complex relationship between how literatures are named and how they are evaluated.

Nana Wilson-Tagoe shows how in turn the literature has broadened the definitions of history to include deeper currents and hidden influences. The book raises questions about gender and history and the ways in which women’s experiences have mediated their portrayal of the past. The author also explores the complex role of Africa in the imagination of West Indian writers. North America: University Press of Florida; Caribbean: University of the West Indies Press.
