Hubert Harrison was reportedly the first regular Black book reviewer in history. About seventy of his reviews have been located. He offers some insights here in a "Histomat: Adventures in Historical Materialism" link. Harrison's original article was on the front page of the "New York Times Saturday Review of Books" in 1907.
