Essays in Black Literatures
Connections is a collection of eight essays which were presented at the International Conference on Black Literatures at the University of Queensland in 1986. The essays examine the writings of Aboriginal inventor David Unaipon, the plays of Jack Davis and Ed Bullins, the short stories of Colin Johnson and Kevin Gilbert, the poetry and fiction of Maori authors such as Tuwhare and Ihimaere, the works and translations of AC Jordan, the writers and writings of the Black Arts and Black Aesthetics movements of America in the 1960s and more.
The relationship between repression, activism and criticism, the problems of translation, the relationship between oral and written performance, and the need for black-owned, black-run publishing house and publications are recurrent themes.
