Where's the Best African American Fiction?

In the class on the Harlem Renaissance that I just completed, there were some who wondered, "Who are the new black writers? Who are the writers who will usher in a new movement in African American Literature?" We (the class) proclaimed this new movement to be the Neo African American Aesthetic. If you're wondering who these writers are check out the new anthology Best African American Fiction due out in January, edited by Gerald Early and E. Lynn Harris.

Oh, and be sure to also check out Best African American Essays, also edited by Gerald Early with Debra Dickerson!
