Biography of Joyce L. Strickland ‘34; first mention of Blackness in the literary magazine, The Lantern (first issue, May 1933); Short story: “A Domestic Episode” (1934)

Subject

Racism at Ursinus College

Description

Art is the pulse of social consciousness. The Lantern is one of the first, and certainly the biggest circulation of art at Ursinus College. To find that a white woman is applauded for speaking from the black experience in the first publication of this magazine is telling of the climate of Ursinus College in the 30s. This is especially true given the lack of students of color on campus to comment on the work.
