BUDD SCHULBERG'S COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION, IN FIRST ISSUE BINDING. Cunard was a literary muse for several modern British and American writers, including Langston Hughes, Aldous Huxley, James Joyce, and others. Dedicated to her lover, Henry Crowder, this book attempts to record "the full violence of the oppression of the 14 million Negroes in America and the upsurge of their demands for mere justice...." It features contributions by Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, William Carlos Williams, W.E.B. DuBois, Theodore Dreiser, W.C. Handy, Arna Bontemps, Countee Cullen, and others. Schulberg was the author of What Makes Sammy Run and won an Academy Award for On the Waterfront, and in 1965 was the founder of the Watts Writers Workshop.
