African-American literature can be seen in a way as a national literature because its largest part is not integrated into American literature. Black writers mainly write about their experiences of being colored in the so-called democratic America. Many times their experiences make them angry and filled with rage. I will examine the nature of black anger, rage, hatred and the concern with belonging to the black race in works of three significant African-American writers of the 20th centrury, namely - Langston Hughes, Richard Wrigh and James Baldwin. I will prove that their somewhat different attitudes to the outside whiteword is due on the one hand to the three different - although overlapping - eras, of the 20th century African-American existence they represent, and on the other hand to their own personal experiences, insultations and/or acceptation by the majority race, which considerably depends on which part of the United States (South-North) they were brought up and lived in. I use their primary works, reviews, biographies and articles as a source.
