Of One Blood : Or, the Hidden Self
by Pauline Hopkins and Leslie Klinger and Eric Guignard




Overview -

An uncanny tale of identity, race, and spirituality by groundbreaking Black author Pauline Hopkins

When medical student Reuel Briggs reluctantly attends a performance by the beautiful singer Dianthe Lusk, he can't help but fall for her. The very next day, their paths cross again when Dianthe's train crashes. To bring her back from the brink of death, Reuel draws on an eerie power he can't quite name. Soon, the two are engaged, and Reuel sets off on an archeological expedition to Africa to offset his debts before the wedding. But, in Ethiopia, unexpected danger and terror force him to confront the truth about his lineage, his power, and the history that lives in his very blood.

First serialized in Colored American Magazine in 1902, this narrative exemplifies Pauline Hopkins's incisive writing and interrogates issues of race and history that remain urgent today. This edition is presented by the Horror Writers Association and introduced by award-winning author Nisi Shawl.

Includes notes, biographical information about the author, discussion questions for classroom use, and suggested further reading
