Among the first generation born free in the South after the Civil War, Alice Dunbar Nelson was one of the prominent African Americans involved in the artistic flourishing of the Harlem Renaissance. As her posthumous editor Alice T. Hull puts it, Dunbar-Nelson and her contemporaries were “always mindful of their need to be living refutations of the sexual slurs to which black women were subjected and, at the same time, as much as white women, were also tyrannized by the still-prevalent Victorian cult of true womanhood.”August Nemo selected for this book seven short stories from this important author who stood out in her time and left a mark of talent and empowerment for future generations:A Carnival JangleLittle Miss SophieLa JuanitaThe Praline WomanSister JosephaMr. BaptisteM'sieu Fortier's Violin
