The Colored American Magazine, first published in 1900, was a pioneering forum for black literary talent. Pauline Hopkins was not only a prolific contributor, but one of its powerful editorial forces. These stories reveal her commitment to fiction as a vehicle for social change, weaving themes such as white oppression, the heroism of black women, and the need for organized resistance to persecution, into the narrative formulas of popular fiction.

"Brilliant....It is not hard to imagine that, once her fiction is given the attention it deserves, Hopkins could replace Chestnutt as the foremost black novelist of the period."--Eric J. Sundquist in The New York Times Book Review "The three novels published in the Schomburg Library for the first time since their appearance in The Colored American Magazine from 1901 to 1903 not only represent an early example of black people producing popular fiction for and about themselves, but extend the cultural and political discourse introduced in Harper's novel [Iola Leroy]."--The Women's Review of Books "Brilliant....It is not hard to imagine that, once her fiction is given the attention it deserves, Hopkins could replace Chestnutt as the foremost black novelist of the period."--Eric J.
