African American Literary Classics

$275 $190

This set features some of the most influential works from African American writers from the 19th and 20th centuries. These authors confronted social issues — from racism and segregation, to feminism and equality as a whole — and their powerful words changed the course of American history. We wrapped this collection in custom book jackets designed with black and gold covers inspired by the sophistication of leather-bound books. All books in the set are hardcover editions published by Library of America.
