This text is a reprint of the 1861 first edition, with explanatory annotations and an introduction by Nellie Y. McKay and Frances Smith Foster." ""Contexts" includes contemporary responses to Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by William C. Nell and Lydia Maria Child, among others; twelve related letters and articles by Jacobs published in newspapers during the period from 1853 to 1868; and documents tracing Jacobs's life and achievements as a free woman, including her establishment of a school in Alexandria, Virginia." ""Criticism" collects eleven important assessments of the work by Jean Fagan Yellin, Ann Taves, Valerie Smith, Nellie Y.

Black studies in the United States : three essays by Robert L Harris( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three essays are presented that discuss, in general terms, information that was collected in 1987-88 concerning the current status of black studies in the United States. The researchers were invited to survey selected black studies departments, programs, institutes, and centers judged to be representative of the structural diversity and programmatic scope of Afro-American and Africana studies across the country; to evaluate their present capacities and strengths; and to assess their future needs. Since the conversations on which this material is based were confidential it could not be reported in full; however, the essays contain substantial amounts of general information. The essays are entitled: "The Intellectual and Institutional Development of Africana Studies" (Robert L. Harris, Jr.); "Black Studies: An Overview" (Darlene Clark Hine); and "Black Studies in the Midwest" (Nellie McKay). (Glr)

The unruly voice : rediscovering Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Unruly Voice explores the literary and journalistic career of Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins, a turn-of-the-century African American writer who was editor in chief of the Colored American Magazine, though it was not acknowledged on the masthead. Hopkins wrote short fiction, novels, nonfiction articles, and a play believed to be the first by an African American woman. Versatile and politically committed, she was fired when the magazine was bought by an ally of Booker T. Washington who disliked her editorial stands and unconciliatory politics. Even though more than a thousand pages of Hopkins's works have been brought back into print, The Unruly Voice is the first book devoted exclusively to her writings and the significance she holds for readers today. Contributors explore the social, political, and historical conditions that informed her literary works
