By Bertram D. Ashe

The development is from Chesnutt's 1899 body texts, during which the black spoken voice is contained via a white narrator/listener, to Bambara's sixties-era instance of a "frameless" spoken voice textual content, to Wideman's neo-frame textual content of the past due twentieth century.
