Abstract

Jennifer Harris University of Waterloo visitor to the American Exhibit of the Paris Exposition Universelle de 1900 could hardly have missed "The Exhibit of American Negroes," located as it was on the right-hand side as one entered (Provenzo 2). But they could be forgiven for overlooking a very small, unusual volume tucked away on the low bookshelves of the exhibit. While most of the books assembled for the display represented earlier publications, this volume appears to have been produced exclusively for the exposition. Four stories, published in Waverley Magazine between July 1896 and May 1900, had been carefully cut from the magazine and bound for inclusion in the exhibit. When the list of works exhibited by African American authors was circulated and reprinted in the pages of the black press, the collection was titled simply Storiettes, the author identified as Barbara Pope. Undoubtedly, few--if any--in Paris had heard of her. Yet in a few years that name would become known to many in the United States as the primary player in the W. E. B. Du Bois­led Niagara Movement's first challenge to interstate segregation laws. Just as quickly, within another decade, Pope would be forgotten, her contributions effaced,
