Popular Fronts: Chicago and African-American Cultural Politics, 1935-46
University of Illinois Press, 1999 - 242 páginas
In a stunning revision of radical politics during the Popular Front period, Bill Mullen redefines the cultural renaissance of the 1930s and early 1940s as the fruit of an extraordinary rapprochement between African-American and white members of the U.S. Left struggling to create a new American Negro culture. A dynamic reappraisal of a critical moment in American cultural history, Popular Fronts includes a major reassessment of the politics of Richard Wright's critical reputation, a provocative reading of class struggle in Gwendolyn Brooks's A Street in Bronzeville, and in-depth examinations of the institutions that comprised Chicago's black popular front: The Chicago Defender, the period's leading black newspaper; Negro Story, the first magazine devoted to publishing short stories by and about black Americans; and the WPA-sponsored South Side Community Art Center.

Página 8 - Angelo Herndon. Hundreds, too, voted for Foster and Ford, Browder and Ford, for what other party since Reconstruction days had ever run a Negro for vice president of the United States ? And who had ever put Negroes in a position where they led white men as well as black?
