Notes

First edition, first printing. "Peterkin's epic novel about a plantation foreman, Black April, appeared in 1927, and this time there was no confusion about the author's race. Peterkin had changed publishers to Bobbs-Merrill, a sales-oriented firm with an aggressive publicity department. Advertised as the work of a southern plantation mistress, Black April climbed onto the bestseller lists and established Peterkin as an authority on black folklore. One of the novel's greatest strengths, the critics said, was that it did not contain a single white character" (ANB).
