The Literary Corner: Eldred Jones on Chinua Achebe (side b)

About the Project

As an undergraduate student at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Brooks B. Robinson produced a 26-part radio series in 1977–1978, covering a variety of topics about African and African American literature. The Literary Corner: Black Writers of the World was broadcast on Wisconsin public radio. Robinson worked with professors in the department of African Languages and Literature and Afro American Studies and hosted each of the 15-minute radio programs. The programs included interviews and reading with professors and authors. The program tapes illustrate the kind of scholarly attention African and African American literature was receiving during the growth of African American studies departments in American colleges and universities. Help us transcribe these tape recordings to learn about African American literature and hear the author’s voices as they read their own works.
