A Treasury of African-American Christmas Stories Reviews

  • Denise Spicer

    11 stories written between 1880 and 1916 by August M. Hodges, Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Ida Wells Barnett and others. (The editor includes some biographical info about these authors.) Mostly cute little Christmas stories and nice pieces of Americana from this time period. (Warning one lynching story is unpleasant).
