Chesnutt, Charles W.: The Marrow of Tradition. v1, 18 Jan 2008
Charles Waddell Chesnutt (June 20, 1858 – November 15, 1932) was an African American author and political activist best known for novels and short stories exploring racism and other social themes.
The Marrow of Tradition is an historical novel and sometimes called a Melodrama first published in 1901.
A fictional retelling of the rise of the white supremacist movement,specifically as it aided the fomentation of what was originally referred to as the “race riots” that took place in Wilmington, North Carolina, in 1898.(Critics argue over what would be a more proper term, with some favoring the blunt and descriptive “massacre” while others prefer coup d'etat, in referenceto the fact that the incident marked the first and only time in the history of the United States that a local government was successfully overthrown by force.)
