ABSTRACT
The article acknowledges the emergence of African American writers who contributed to the development of African American literature. All of them find their places in the African American literary movement through exiles. To them exile is chance, choice, dance and happenstance. Changes, permutations, and shifts, though, have been part of the continuum of black writing since the Harlem Awakening and the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. Flashing forward to the 1990s we encounter Terry McMillan, Toni Morrison, and Alice Walker.
