The Négritude movement raised black consciousness in the Francophone world throughout the 1930's. In this compilation of works by Caribbean and African writers, learners reflect on the international literary movement that explored French identity and questioned French colonial rule.
In Négritude et Nouveaux Monde, a biography about the writer and their relationship to the movement accompanies the poem. Each piece of writing concludes with questions, and every section ends with ideas for "reflection and composition" enticing students into a more thorough discussion of the movement as a whole, and its connections to our world today.
This text was designed for intermediate or advanced high school and college courses, with some poems that are easier than others, and definitions to many new words in the footnotes. The anthology can studied as a literary movement or used as part of a larger discussion of French African literature.
