In 1953 African-American poet Langston Hughes began corresponding with several South African writers variously affiliated with the legendary Drum magazine. Published here for the first time, these letters provide an invaluable glimpse into the growing repression of South African apartheid and the slow but painful progress of the American Civil Rights movement. Revealing a fascinating set of transatlantic friendships between a titan of American letters and a group of writers that includes Peter Clarke, Todd Matshikiza, Bloke Modisane, Ezekiel Mphahlele, Peter Abrahams, and Richard Rive, this volume highlights Hughes’s enormous influence on the rise of English-language literature by black and mixed-race writers in South Africa.

Review:

“This is an intriguing and invaluable book. Graham and Walters have unearthed a trove of correspondence which, for many years to come, will be a touchstone for scholars of African-American and African literatures and cultures. The book offers a moving account of the emergence of a transnational dynamic of encouragement and practical support among African diasporic writers.”—Rob Nixon, Rachel Carson Professor of English, University of Wisconsin-Madison
