Next to the Color Line by Susan Gillman
Book DescriptionAlthough W. E. B. Du Bois did not often pursue the connections between the Negro question that defined so much of his intellectual life and the woman question that engaged writers and feminist activists around him, Next to the Color Line argues that within Du Bois s work is a politics of juxtaposition that connects race, gender, sexuality, and justice. This provocative collection investigates a set of political formulations and rhetorical strategies by which Du Bois approached, used, and repressed issues of gender and sexuality. The essays in Next to the Color Line propose a return to Du Bois, not only to reassess his politics but also to demonstrate his relevance for today s scholarly and political concerns.

"Blood Talk" shows how race melodrama emerged from race abolitionist works such as "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and surprisingly manifested itself in a set of more aesthetically and politically varied works, such as historical romances, sentimental novels and travel literature.
