Summary
Henry Dumas (1934 -- 1968) was a writer who did not live to see most of his fiction and poetry in print. A son of Sweet Home, Arkansas, and Harlem, he devoted himself to the creation of a black literary cosmos, one in which black literature and culture were windows into the human condition. While he certainly should be understood in the context of the cultural and political movements of the 1960s -- Black Arts, Black Power, and Civil Rights -- his writing, and ultimately his life, were filled with ambiguities and contradictions
