I wrote this paper at the conclusion of the course, Literature of the Harlem Renaissance, with Angelo Robinson. I wanted to investigate Nanny's statement in Their Eyes Were Watching God -- the black woman is "the mule of the world" -- in relation to other novels of that period, and in relation to more current musings on the otherwise ignored area where race and gender issues intersect. I have never felt so consumed by a subject as I was with this paper and the research that preceded its writing.
