His works, which featured the experiences of African Americans in the ante- and post-bellum period, received favorable reviews. But they did not find a large and appreciative audience until many decades later when both the civil rights movement and increased interest in the African-American contribution to American cultural life resulted in the "rediscovering" of Chesnutt's large body of writings."--Jacket." ;
