About the Book
REMEMBERING Paule is the compelling story of two friends, novelist Paule Marshall and folklorist and literary critic Daryl Cumber Dance, both committed truth-tellers, teachers, cultural critics, writers, and activists who wielded their pens to revolutionize their literary world. Marshall is often hailed as the matriarch of the Black Women’s Literary Renaissance. Her Brown Girl, Brownstones signaled a new day in African Diasporic women’s writing. Daryl Dance has been dubbed ‘the Dean of American folklore’ for her work in African American and Jamaican folklore.
