[Black April is] the first genuine novel in English of the Negro as a human being.
—Donald Davidson, founding editor
The figure of Black April, the foreman of Blue Brook Plantation, who gives the book its title, is of the heroic, almost grandiose, mold of the legendary protagonists of fiction.
—New York Times
Black April's vigorous simplicity makes it deserving of a place among the world's best folk-tales.
