On one side, a union leader and veteran black woman educator View Product. Nowell served as Wolfe's editor for many of his short stories, paring them down to make them acceptable to magazines.
Oddly enough, his attitude toward her Further, this section demonstrates the ongoing commitment of both sides of Hopkins's family to black freedom, cultural arts, and social justice. Brown's work builds on other studies of free blacks in New England, such as the pathbreaking scholarship of Lorenzo Greene and James and Lois Horton.
The second section of Brown's narrative explores Hopkins's creative work in theater and music. It shows Hopkins's development as an artist and performer and places her within the changing world of late nineteenth-century black public performance culture. Hopkins and other black actors and musicians were determined to produce and exhibit artistic works that stressed the agency of authentic black characters.
In addition to creating an opportunity for black artists, their troupe also used performance as a medium to explore and critique racist elements of American popular culture during the period, especially blackface minstrelsy. Through historical plays based on African American experiences in slavery and freedom, Hopkins challenged a rapidly developing collective memory that sought to expunge the Civil War's legacy of black freedom and racial equality, as well as the story of African American agency in institution and community building during Reconstruction.
Hopkins joined the myriad voices of northern blacks, such as W. DuBois, Ida B.
Wells, William Monroe Trotter, and others who protested the increase in lynching, disfranchisement, and racial violence against blacks in the South at the beginning of the twentieth century. Brown introduces Hopkins's foray into writing in the third section of the book.
Hopkins's success as a novelist and her historic tenure as editor of the Colored American Magazine , the nation's first black literary magazine, brought her into the company of national figures who were increasingly conscious of the need to address the tenuous position of black citizens in Progressive-Era America. Hopkins's efforts to forge an identity as a race writer joined with her skills in "literary advocacy" proved to be a brilliant strategy for the new magazine.
In addition to providing a venue for literary and intellectual writers, the Colored American Magazine grappled with the social and political issues that blacks faced in early twentieth-century America. Some features of WorldCat will not be available. Create lists, bibliographies and reviews: or.
