Stormy Weather: Middle-Class African American Marriages Between the Two World Wars

Stormy Weather: Middle-Class African American Marriages Between the Two World Wars Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The so-called New Negroes of the period between World Wars I and II embodied a new sense of racial pride and upward mobility for the race. Many of them thought that relationships between spouses could be a crucial factor in realizing this dream. But there was little agreement about how spousal relationships should actually function in an ideal New Negro marriage. Shedding light on an often-overlooked aspect of African American social history, Curwood explores the public and private negotiations over gender relationships inside marriage that consumed upwardly mobile black Americans between 1918 and 1942.

About the Author

Anastasia C. Curwood is assistant professor of African American and diaspora studies at Vanderbilt University.
