Watson focuses on 10 novels during the periods 1891-1920, 1921-1945, and 1946-1965, and discusses their literary characteristics and aesthetic achievement. These include the novels of Frances Harper, Pauline Hopkins, Jessie Fauset, Zora Neale Hurston, Ann Petry, Paule Marshall, and Kristin Hunter. The author discusses the use of fiction as a weapon of protest; race consciousness and self-criticism, concerns such as middle-class values and the ideal of self-help in the novels written after World War I; the maturity of the novels after World War II; and the characteristic Afro-American fiction as compared to mainstream American fiction.
