Description

Charles Chesnutt in the Classroom is designed to introduce students, teachers, and interested readers to historical connections between Groveland, Ohio, the location for most of Chesnutt’s northern fiction, and Cleveland, Ohio, where Chesnutt was born in 1858 and died in 1932. Chesnutt’s life, which spans two centuries, offers a unique lens to not only observe Cleveland the verge of urbanization but also understand its influence on black education, Black Nationalism and the emerging Black Middle Class, with particular attention paid to deconstructing Chesnutt’s use of satiric perspective in describing race relations in Northeast Ohio and state of American politics at the turn of the 19th century.
