Abstract

Barwick uses Wallace Thurman’s The Blacker the Berry: A Novel of Negro Life (1929) to introduce students to the concept of colorism. Barwick’s essay outlines a strategy for integrating technology into the classroom, which helps facilitate discussions of the United States as a postracial society. In addition, his essay explores ways that Thurman’s novel can be used to examine the commodification of the black female body and the relationship between the visual and literary production during the Harlem Renaissance.
