40 Acres and a Carabao

Excited to see my article on black journalist T. Thomas Fortune’s journey to Hawaii and the Philippines in print in the January 2018 issue of theĀ Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era. I wish I could have spent more time in Hawaiian and Philippine archives, but I’m happy to have at least supplied a more complete sketch of Fortune’s quest than that which appeared nearly fifty years ago in Emma Lou Thornbrough’s excellent biography of the militant editor.

My experience with JGAPE was very positiveā€”thanks especially to co-editor Benjamin Johnson.
