Race, Poe and Philadelphia


Last nite 10/19/15 at Free Library of Philadelphia heard excellent panel on

“Race, Poe and Philadelphia”

by Dr. Liliane Weissberg, U of P prof and editor of “Romancing the Shadow: Race and Poe”

with Donn Scott, local historian and ast Prof of English in engaging and

controversial conversation. So much so, that I just subscribed thru Amazon.com

for my own copy. Furthermore, because of Dr. Weissberg, I am convinced that

Poe never became a Southern Gentleman or holder of the enslaved,

and illustrated in his own life experiences of how to deal with racism.
