Cannon, Poppy  
A Gentle Knight: My Husband, Walter White
Publisher: Rinehart & Company, Inc., 1956 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "This is the biography of a marriage, unusually happy and tender, though subjected to cruel pressures and strains that might have shattered a less firm union. It is the warm and courageous story of Poppy Cannon's marriage to Walter White, blue-eyed and fair-haired, a man who chose to identify himself as a Negro and thus made a special mockery of the so-called race problem. "With heart-warming frankness, understanding, and humor, Poppy Cannon tells of the problems faced by a white woman married to the executive head of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People: the effect on her children in a highly conservative community, the storm in the press; new hostilities and friendships. "She sees and reports upon two worlds--white and colored--in a manner both personal and analytical. The Whites continued to fight together for the ideals he had relentlessly pursued all his life. "However, this is not merely a story of great achievements, great names, momentous decisions. It is above all, a vivid portrait of a man who had all the qualities of 'chivalre, trouthe, and honour, freedom and curtesey' that Chaucer gave to his 'verray Parfit, Gentil Knight.' Walter White's death in 1955 was a stunning loss to all humanity." 309 pages with index.

Redding, J. Saunders  
Troubled in Mind: J. Saunders Redding's Early Years in Wilmington, Delaware
Publisher: The Delaware Heritage Commission, 1991 Wilmington, DE.
ISBN: 0924117036 Book. Book condition: Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall Redding was a noted African-American author, teacher and critic. "..Despite his international reputations as an author, scholar and teacher and the numerous prestigious awards and honorary degrees he received during his distinguished career in Wilmington, Delaware (where he was born and graduated from high school), J. Saunders Redding remains obscure. Only a few of his books and none of his articles are in the inventories of the public libraries. Most students even at his alma mater have never heard of him. His high school classmates remember him more as a good basketball player than as an accomplished academic. And while his age, residence in other states, and propensity toward shyness may partially account for this paradox, one cannot help but wonder if Redding's virtual anonymity in Wilmington is yet another example of the neglect by the general population of African American contributors and contributions.."
