The Salt Eaters, which is the alleged topic ofthis symposium, is an extremely important work for any number of reasons, not the least of which is that it is the embodiment ofhow one thinks and writes "black." To help us understand both the black cognitive process and its literary embodiment, I have convened this very distinguished, interdisciplinary panel of scholars.
