Frank Yerby (September 5, 1916 – November 29, 1991) was an American writer, best known for his 1946 historical novel The Foxes of Harrow.
In some quarters, Yerby is best known for his masterpiece, Dahomean (1971). The novel, which focuses on the life of an enslaved African chief's son who is transported to America, serves as the culmination of Yerby's efforts toward incorporating racial themes into his works. Prior to that, Yerby was often criticized by blacks for the lack of focus on or stereotypical treatment of African-American characters in his books.
Yerby left the United States in 1955, in protest against racial discrimination, and moved to Spain (then under the Franco regime), where he remained for the rest of his life.
