Though her writings were based in Harlem, Petry’s books were considered part of the Chicago Renaissance. Her themes often surrounded black urban life as a site of hopelessness. Petry’s first and most powerful novel, “The Street” won the Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship, with book sales topping a million copies.
Jupiter Hammon (1711 – 1806) was a Black poet who in 1761 became the first African-American writer to be published in the present-day United States. A devout Christian, Hammon is considered one of the founders of African-American literature.
