      From H-Women (5/3/2012) From: "Lauren Kientz Anderson" Subject: Re: bourgeois vacuity In one of my previous blog posts, I wrote about the claim that the black middle class was vacuous during the 1920s. In the comments, I was challenged to update my historiography on the politics of respectability. This gave me the chance to read Erin Chapman's excellent new work, *Prove it on Me: New Negroes, Sex, and Popular Culture in the 1920s. *Her prose is gorgeous and dense. Many of the things I was feeling instinctually, she articulates with precision." Here's Chapman's challenge to Anderson.
  • two major camps. There were those who sought to modernize and professionalize established ideologies of racial advancement, solidarity, and uplift through a New Negro progressivism.... Others.. questioned, if not the very idea of racial solidarity itself, then at least the obligation of racial allegiance and respectability, and instead touted a radical individualism and independence from all but the most personal allegiances to 'art' or 'self' or some other self-generated ideal."

UK Prof's community reading club in Lex - will first focus on MLKing autobio - 0 views

  •  
    Dr. Adam Banks, UK Rhetoric professor, will be meeting with Lexington African-American community members to allow for greater access to thoughtful, critical inquiry about crucial topics on race today - not just leave historic images for popular consumption without question but allow some time and space for community dialog on the actual words of MLK Jr, from his own authorship (autobiography). This important learning experience will benefit not only the African-American individuals who go and participate, but also the larger communities in which we all will benefit from a more thoughtful public.

    This directory was compiled and edited by Lucy Harth Smith - see Measha's research journal entry on her at http://www.kywcrh.org/archives/650 - it would be FANTASTIC if we could get some of these women's pictures used on the KYwCRh.org website! Anyone want to work with Reinette to pick out which pictures need to be digitized?!
