Sarah Webster Fabio:(Re)Covering the Rainbow
One important trend in contemporary studies of African American literature and culture is an effort to reassess works by writers and other artists whose contributions to the Black Arts Movement(BAM) have been accorded insufficient critical discussion. One such figure is the poet Sarah Webster Fabio. Her vernacular theorizing and praxis establish her legacy in the contexts of African American literary history. This article provides a brief commentary on her construction of legacy in the Rainbow Series, seven volumes or chapbooks published in 1973. It provides suggestions for how her specifications regarding literature and culture and modeling of sociopoetics might be studied now and in the future.
