Dorothy West's paradise : a biography of class and color by Cherene Sherrard-Johnson( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dorothy West is best known as one of the youngest writers involved in the Harlem Renaissance. Her work is read as a product of the urban aesthetics of this artistic movement. But West was also intimately rooted in a very different milieuâ€"Oak Bluffs, an exclusive retreat for African Americans on Martha's Vineyard. In the years between publishing her two novels, 1948's The Living is Easy and the 1995 bestseller The Wedding, she worked as a columnist for the Vineyard Gazette. This book captures the scope of the author's long life and career, reading it alongside the unique cultural geography of Oak Bluffs and its history as an elite African American enclave, a place that West envisioned both as a separatist refuge and as a space for interracial contact

Imagining the "new" mulatto : ideology and iconography in the literature of the Harlem Renaissance by Cherene Sherrard-Johnson( )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My dissertation, "Imagining the 'New' Mulatto: Iconography and Ideology in the Literature of the Harlem Renaissance," explores how visual art and culture impacted the imagery, themes and forms of Harlem Renaissance literature. My interdisciplinary study focuses on the writings of Jessie Fauset, Nella Larsen, and Jean Toomer and the utilization of what I call mulatta iconography within their fiction. Mulatta iconography consists of colorful, visually evocative images which refer to popular culture, film, high art, primitivism and modernism; these images reflect the long tradition of the tragic mulatta figure in nineteenth and turn of the century American and African American literature. By identifying the visual encoding associated with black female representation in Fauset, Larsen and Toomer's novels, I demonstrate how attention to the artistic exchange between visual artists and writers of the Harlem Renaissance enables richer scholarly explorations of narrative attempts to dismantle and analyze the black female body as an icon of commodified sexuality. I examine both high art, (paintings and sculpture) and popular art, (magazine covers and film), placing the visual text in dialogue with the written narratives. My comparative analysis of these African American modernist novelists with visual artists Archibald J. Motley, Jr. and William H. Johnson, and films such as Imitation of Life, illustrates how and why mulatto iconography dominated the ideology of uplift and newness which characterized the discourse of the New Negro Movement/Harlem Renaissance, thus situating the mulatto as the quintessential, iconic, representational figure of the time. The body of scholarly criticism arising from Black feminist thought, cultural studies, film theory, art history and literary criticism, informs this study. It is situated within the discourse on artistic movements from the earlier part of the twentieth century: modernism, primitivism and the New Negro movement

Comedy, American style by Jessie Redmon Fauset( Recording )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[This book] recounts the tragic tale of a family's destruction -- the story of a mother who denies her clan its heritage. Originally published in 1933, this intense narrative stands the test of time and continues to raise compelling, disturbing, and still contemporary themes of color prejudice and racial self-hatred. Several of today's bestselling novelists echo subject matter first visited in Fauset's commanding work, which overflows with rich, vivid, and complex characters who explore questions of color, passing, and black identity. Cherene Sherrard-Johnson's introduction places this literary classic in both the new modernist and transatlantic contexts and will be embraced by those interested in earlytwentieth-century women writers, novels about passing, the Harlem Renaissance, the black/white divide, and diaspora studies. Selected essays and poems penned by Fauset are also included, among them "Yarrow Revisited"and "Oriflamme," which help highlight the full canon of her extraordinary contribution to literature and provide contextual background to the novel.-Back cover
