American Writers (One Hundred Pages at a Time)

Episode 114: Charles W. Chesnutt, Assorted Stories

April 8, 2018

In this episode, I look at some of the uncollected stories by Charles W. Chesnutt. We have some more stories in the Julius series, including one on Southern geophagia. There are also some of his "northern stories" dealing wtih the color line from a broader national perspective. There are even a few stories were Chesnutt (out of character) took on issues not relating to the color line at all.
