separateness existing between black Americans and Africans. Ewa Luczak’s essay “‘The Quality of Hurt’: African American Writerly Displacement in Europe in the 1960s” resonates with Jerzy Kamionowski’s in that it considers the manner in which African American writers of the 1960s—inspired by the assumption that Blacks born in the United States were part of a larger African diaspora yet rejecting Pan-Africanism’s fundamental essentialism—follow[ed] the path of nostalgic displacement forged by Richard Wright. Living in a decade that called for a radical revisioning of

Renaissance writers as well as an examination of the positive and negative aspects of city life. Micheaux’s project of representing the issues that were central to black urban life serves as a historical link to two later movements within African American film production: black action films (blaxploitation) and the L.A. school of black filmmakers.
