Charles W. Chesnutt, was the first African-American writer to receive major acclaim when in 1887 his short story “The Goophered Grapevine” appeared in the Atlantic Monthly. He often spoke out against racial discrimination; his writings were well known for their probing into the fight for civil rights — often revealing the contradictions at the heart of attitudes toward race. Chesnutt received the NAACP’s Spingarn Award for his “pioneer work as a literary artist depicting the life and struggles of Americans of Negro descent.” (APS)
