Indd 27 3/10/11 8:38 AM 28 AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN WRITERS’ HISTORICAL FICTION Indicative of this new vision was the work of Richard Wright. In his “Blueprint for Negro Writing,” published in 1937, a year after Walker joined the WPA in Chicago, Wright criticized the writing of the previous generations for being overly preoccupied with white audiences and their bourgeois values and failing to address the African American masses, their culture, their hardships, and their aspirations. ”15 Walker’s years in Chicago, her job in the WPA, and her association with the South Side Writers’ Group and with Wright laid the foundations for her writing career.

In the year 1892 three books were given the world by this class of writers, well worthy of high consideration: Mrs. A. J. Cooper, ‘A Voice from the South by a Black Woman of the South;’ Mrs. F. E. W. Harper, ‘Iola; or, Shadows Uplifted;’ and Mrs. W. A. Dove, ‘The Life and Sermons of Rev. W. A. ’”50 To this list, Bishop Lee could have added two other works by women published in the same year, Southern Horrors: Lynch Law in All Its Phases by Ida B. Wells-Barnett, and From the Darkness Cometh the Light or, Struggles for Freedom by Lucy A.

Third, the representation of the African American female as a temptress rationalized and legitimatized the abuse of black women by white men. White quotes William Harper, the chancellor of the University of South Carolina, whose speech encapsulates the Southern debate on the immorality of the black woman and the legitimacy of the white man to use her body as he saw fit: “She [the pregnant slave] is not a less useful member of society than before . . She has not impaired her means of support or materially impaired her character, or lowered her station in society; she has done no great injury to herself, or any other human being.
