Clarence and Corinne; Or God's Way (Schomburg Library of Nineteenth-Century Black Women Writers)by A. E. Johnson
Synopses & Reviews
Published in 1890, Clarence and Corinne is a novel that reflects the social reform ideology of the U.S. women's movement in the late 19th century. Mrs. Johnson condemns the destructive effects of "demon" alcohol on the nuclear family, focusing on the danger that alcoholism poses to women and children. When it first appeared, Clarence and Corinne was cited by the Baptist Messenger, a black religious publication, as "one of the silent, yet powerful agents at work to break down unreasonable prejudice, which is a hindrance to both races."
