Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This History explores innovations in African American autobiography since its inception, examining the literary and cultural history of Black self-representation amid life writing studies. By analyzing the different forms of autobiography, including pictorial and personal essays, editorials, oral histories, testimonials, diaries, personal and open letters, and even poetry performance media of autobiographies, this book extends the definition of African American autobiography, revealing how people of African descent have created and defined the Black self in diverse print cultures and literary genres since their arrival in the Americas. It illustrates ways African Americans use life writing and autobiography to address personal and collective Black experiences of identity, family, memory, fulfillment, racism and white supremacy. Individual chapters examine scrapbooks as a source of self-documentation, African American autobiography for children, readings of African American persona poems, mixed-race life writing after the Civil Rights Movement, and autobiographies by African American LGBTQ writers.

This book was released on 2000 with total page 155 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Through an analysis of classic slave narratives in comparison with texts such as the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, this study presents a new paradigm for the social character of the African American autobiography. Since the rise of Black Studies in the late 1960s, leading critics have constructed black lives and letters as antitheses to the ways and writings of mainstream culture. That position fosters the notion that black autobiography differs radically from heroic white American tales. But this volume argues that the African American autobiography is a continuation of the epic tradition, and that African Americans have shared and shaped the American experience.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Literature, University of Hannover, 4 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: When reading African-American autobiography one is likely to notices that there are several recurring themes. One might conclude that these are issues of special interest to the authors. A major topic that occurs in a number of autobiographies is that of education. This paper will try to analyze the role of education in the process of the emancipation of the black race. Before one looks at what can be found about the issue of education of blacks in African-American autobiography one should be familiar with the historical and cultural context in which it occurs. This is why the paper will try to provide a brief historical overview of the development of education in America at the times before, during and after the civil war. After having established the historical background the paper will try to trace the occurrences of the theme of education in the autobiography of Booker T. Washington and the thesis The Talented Tenth by W.E.B. Du Bois and illustrate its importance to the authors. In doing so an attempt will be made to present the reasons and intentions of the authors that made them deal with education during their lives. Special attention will be paid to the efforts of Booker T. Washington to establish a schooling system for blacks as well as to Du Bois’ concept of the ‘Talented Tenth’ and its reasons. Although both were actively sought to improve the education of African Americans and thereby their social status they did not share the same concepts of how this were to be achieved and they pursued different educational policies. The two approaches will be analyzed and compared to each other. Finally a conclusion will be drawn assessing the importance of their achievements in the ongoing fight of African Americans for equal rights and equal chances.

An African American Women's Autobiography and First Lady Memoir written by Dianne Petrov and published by GRIN Verlag. This book was released on 2021-02-03 with total page 45 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Bachelor Thesis from the year 2020 in the subject American Studies - Literature, University of Luxembourg, language: English, abstract: This BA dissertation is dedicated to the genre of autobiographies, also known as life writing. It focuses on Michelle Obama's 2018 memoir "Becoming" and discusses both the traditions of African-American female autobiographies and the political memoir genre. "Becoming" permits Obama to tell her own story to set the record straight. It gives her the opportunity to rewrite her story and define her own identity for herself. Writing as a former political figure–the First Lady of the United States of America, Obama does not refrain from incorporating her personal life as well as a personal message. As a former First Lady, "Becoming" can be understood as being part of the genre of the First Lady memoir. As such, Obama’s autobiography can be defined as an intersection between African American women’s autobiographies and the genre of First Lady memoir which have both been largely excluded from the literary canon. Thus, Obama constitutes a minority within a minority as she is not only a First Lady, but she is the nation’s only African American First Lady. Moreover, Obama constitutes a political observer and having written one of the most valuable autobiographies of the twenty-first century, she illustrates how despite the fact that African Americans have largely been excluded from American politics, her autobiography demonstrates the progress America has made by electing its first African American president. In this thesis, it is my contention that Obama’s autobiography "Becoming" constructs an amalgamation between African American women’s life writing and the autobiographical sub-genre of the First Lady memoir. African American women autobiographers construct a self that has, as Terrell puts it, two central handicaps – gender and race. This statement from the 20th century captures the intersectionality of African American women’s identities. In her autobiography "Becoming", Michelle Obama shows her awareness of her intersectional identity as she writes ‘I’ve been the only woman, the only African American, in all sorts of rooms’. Thus, the tradition of African American women’s autobiographies requires a suitable theoretical framework when examining their texts.

This book was released on 1991 with total page 520 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The book contains the biography of an American bondman William Wells Brown, which was written by his daughter Josephine Brown. It also presents the precedent-setting biography of Martin R. Delany, which helped to introduce an analytical approach to biography writing in African-American letters. An unabashed success story of one man's military career during the Civil War and his subsequent work in the Freedman's Bureau during Reconstruction, this book, written at a crucial juncture in American history, creates a vivid portrait of a man who comes to represent the voice of national union, mediation of conflict between blacks and whites in the South, and a fair and equitable democratic society.

Download or read book African American Journalists written by Calvin L. Hall and published by Scarecrow Press. This book was released on 2009-07-01 with total page 146 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the last decade of the 20th century, during a time when African Americans were starting to take inventory of the gains of the civil rights movement and its effects on the lives of black professionals in the public sphere, the memoirs of several journalists were published, a number of which became national bestsellers. African American Journalists examines select autobiographies written by African American journalists in order to explore the relationship between race, class, gender, and journalism practice. At the heart of this study is the contention that contemporary memoirs written by African American journalists are quasi-political documents_manifestos written in reaction to and against the forces of institutionalized racism in the newsroom. The memoirs featured in this study include Jill Nelson's Volunteer Slavery: My Authentic Negro Experience, Nathan McCall's Makes Me Wanna Holler: A Young Black Man in America, Jake Lamar's Bourgeois Blues: An American Memoir, and Patricia Raybon's My First White Friend: Confessions on Race, Love, and Forgiveness. The exploration of these works increases our understanding of the problems that members of other underrepresented groups may face in the workplace.
