      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."
  • transition between the politics of respectability and New Negro Modernism
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • After reading Chapman's introduction, I can see how much the women I study straddle that line, sometimes evoking the one and sometimes evoking the other.
  • politics of respectability
  • formation of the sex-race marketplace
  • development of an intra-racial discourse of race motherhood
  • Together, they rendered black women largely invisible, their subjectivity flat and inhuman, for the greater part of that century

    "hostility, invisibility and the feeling of being an outsider are still realities for many undergraduate and graduate women" - crazy since females now outnumber males, but proportional representation does not tell us about women's lives lived.

Carnegie library - eNotes.com Reference - 1 views

  • Beginning in the late 19th century, women's clubs organized in the United States, and were critical in identifying the need for libraries, as well as organizing for their construction and long-term financial support through fundraising and lobbying government bodies.[1] Women's clubs were instrumental in the founding of 75-80 percent of the libraries in the United States.[2] Carnegie's grants were catalysts for library construction based on organizing by women's clubs.
  • Under segregation black people were generally denied access to public libraries in the Southern United States. Rather than insisting on his libraries being racially integrated, he funded separate libraries for African Americans. For example, at Houston he funded a separate Colored Carnegie Library because black people were prohibited from using the "white" Carnegie Library there.[4]
  • This coincided with the rise of women's clubs in the post-Civil War period, which were most responsible for organizing efforts to establish libraries, including long-term fundraising and lobbying within their communities to support operations and collections.[6] They led the establishment of 75-80 percent of the libraries in communities across the country.[7]
  •  
    In researching the segregation of public libraries, I also found that during the establish of the Carnegie libraries spurred the creation of many women's groups throughout the country in the late 19th century. These women's group have taken off and continued throughout history.

    This is the interview of Mrs. Powers and is extremely beneficial to our study of her. I think she was one of the most influential women of all time. She was able to influence and change so many lives in Kentucky and through out the south.
