Inspired by Jessie R. Fauset


Jessie Redmon Fauset (April 27, 1882 – April 30, 1961) was an American editor, poet, essayist and novelist. Fauset was the editor of the NAACP magazine, The Crisis. She also was the editor and co-author for the African American children's magazine Brownies' Book. She studied the teachings and beliefs of W.E.B. Du Bois and considered him to be her mentor. Fauset was known as one of the most intelligent women novelists of the Harlem Renaissance, earning her the name "the midwife". In her lifetime she wrote four novels as well as poetry and short fiction. Both in her poetry and in her four successful novels, she gave readers the first real and compassionate picture of middle-class African-American life.
