  • Introduction: From The Brownies’ Book to Black Lives Matter:
    • Abstract: This issue of The Lion and the Unicorn pays homage to The Brownies’ Book magazine, initiated one hundred years ago by the editors of Crisis magazine. Published from 1920–21, this magazine was not the first to embrace a black child audience, but it had a national reach and centered the black child in both its literary and visual representation. Its editors, W. E. B. Du Bois and Jesse Fauset, crafted goals for the journal that still resonate today, including the development of racial self-confidence through literature. But rather than calling for essays on The Brownies’ Book itself, particularly given that Dianne Johnson and Jonda McNair have a forthcoming centennial edited collection with this aim, we requested ...

  • Before The Brownies’ Book
    • Abstract: Long before I was assigned any piece of African American literature in any classroom (in which Black writers would be few and far between for the first twenty years of my formal education), it was my own father who put Black literature into my hands.1 My experience is not unique, but representative of a long history of African American people’s attention to the study of Black people and Black writing, an interest that has always extended beyond the bounds of academic institutions and formal education. Black parents (and some nonblack parents of Black children) of every socioeconomic class have long sought out texts, images, and other media that would affirm and celebrate, rather than ignore or disparage, their ...

  • Uncertain Directions in Black Children’s Literature
    • Abstract: When I was asked to comment on the state of black children’s literature, my first response was uncertainty, for a number of reasons.1 I’ve been following the news about high-profile publications by black authors—Tomi Adeyemi, Jason Reynolds, Justina Ireland, Jay Cole, Ibi Zoboi, Angie Stone, and many others—and reading their work, as much as my schedule permits. Yet I know that the Cooperative Children’s Book Center has indicated that fewer than half of the books it received in 2018 that focused on black protagonists were written by black authors.2 I know from my own experience of reading historical narratives for young readers about enslaved, free, and freed African Americans in the eighteenth and nineteenth ...

  • Let the Church Say Amen
    • Abstract: In 2018, while tumbling down bibliographic rabbit holes for my dissertation, I saw an advertisement for a new academic text entitled, Jezebel Unhinged: Loosing the Black Female Body in Religion and Culture by independent scholar Dr. Tamura Lomax. I opened the book and began to read, then promptly turned it over and shut it. The arrow of Dr. Lomax’s words bullseyed into my soul. Several days later, I opened the book and began to read once more:The Black Church at its best is a wellspring of black religiosity, cultural formation, and liberatory acts. It is complex communal space where many black Americans feel human, valued, loved, and hopeful . . . where black folk beaten down by false racial narratives might ... Read More

  • Dreaming “for Real”: June Jordan’s His Own Where as
           Youth History
    • Abstract: The young readers of The Brownies’ Book claimed the magazine as their own. As scholars have noted, the magazine featured the writing, art, and accomplishments of actual young people—publishing the short stories of one and reporting the musical achievements of another.1 Far from satisfied, children’s voices within The Brownies’ Book emit a restless, ardent energy.Particularly in letters to editor W. E. B. Du Bois from “The Jury,” young readers use the magazine to push the boundaries of what is possible and what is theirs. Children’s submissions of writing register the desire and even expectation of being printed, even when that bid goes unmet. The April 1920 issue, for instance, includes Pearl Staple’s letter but ...

    • Abstract: In her groundbreaking 1987 essay, “The Race for Theory,” Barbara Christian recognizes a shifting fact pertaining to literary criticism, cautioning that “the distinctions between everything written and those things written to evoke feeling as well as to express thought, have been blurred” (67). Christian’s caveat is directed toward critics who have engaged in a literary imperialism2 that assaults our sensibilities toward literary works and the living texts who inspire them; such assaults produce violence especially in the vein of critical inattentiveness or a critical-structuring out that omits narratives or unsightly factors that offend our discriminatory epistemologies. In other words, a curated critical language ... Read More

  • Adolescence, Blackness, and the Politics of Respectability in Monster and
           The Hate U Give
    • Abstract: The strongest lesson I can teach my son is the same lesson I teach my daughter: how to be who he wishes to be for himself. And the best way I can do this is to be who I am and hope that he will learn from this not how to be me, which is not possible, but how to be himself. And this means how to move to that voice from within himself, rather than to those raucous, persuasive, or threatening voices from outside, pressuring him to be what the world wants him to be.You see, black people, black resistance, and black organizing, has changed the landscape of what is politically possible. Whether or not you call it Black Lives Matter, whether or not you put a hashtag in front of it, whether or not you call it The Movement ... Read More

  • “We Gon’ Fight, Emmett”: Performing Childhood and Innocence as
           Resistance in Black Youth Slam Poetry
    • Abstract: Brave New Voices (BNV) is an annual poetry slam competition that started in 1998 with the goal of amplifying youth poets’ voices at the national level. Youth Speaks, the foundation responsible for creating BNV, got its name because “the next generation can speak for itself” (n.p.). Since 1998, BNV has continued to convene each year to determine a champion among the top ranked youth slam teams in the nation. In 2015, the Philadelphia team won with three final stage pieces that all wrestle with Blackness in one way or another; they also all utilize meticulous staging and choreography that help capture the audience’s attention and ask us to address the very real materiality of both the poets and their subject ...

  • Notes toward a Black Fantastic: Black Atlantic Flights beyond Afrofuturism
           in Young Adult Literature
    • Abstract: We are in a cultural moment where speculative storytelling reigns supreme. As we commemorate the centenary of The Brownies’ Book, edited by W. E. B. DuBois and Jessie Fauset, one recalls Fern Kory’s observation that “The fact that the first stories offered to children by the editors of [the NAACP’s influential magazine] Crisis were folktales and fairy stories suggests that these genres were central to their conception of an African American children’s literature” (91). While the pages of The Brownies’ Book’s first issue include the reality of segregation and the necessity of protest, there are many evocative glimpses of whimsy and wonder as well. Delightful tall tales such as Peggy Poe’s “Pumpkin Land,” thrilling ... Read More

  • L.M. Montgomery and the Matter of Nature(s) ed. by Rita Bode and Jean
           Mitchell (review)
    • Abstract: As Rita Bode and Jean Mitchell, editors of L.M. Montgomery and the Matter of Nature(s) note in their introduction, Canadian author L.M. Montgomery’s exploration of nature in her writings was “subtle and fluid,” shaped not only by her early life on Prince Edward Island, but by “modernity” and the devastation wrought by the First and Second World Wars (3). New scholarly approaches to exploring human and nonhuman relationships and our current anxieties about environmental issues, many of which Montgomery shared in her lifetime, make a critical reassessment of her works imperative. L.M. Montgomery and the Matter of Nature(s) provides such a timely and relevant reappraisal. The introduction and each of the twelve essays ... Read More

  • The Children’s Film: Genre, Nation and Narrative by Noel Brown
           (review)
    • Abstract: Hollywood moviegoers are inundated with children’s films—or, at the very least, films that do not actively exclude children. Superhero movies, animated comedies, and adventure films are regular staples designed to appeal to a broad audience. In his new book, The Children’s Film: Genre, Nation and Narrative, Noel Brown not only takes up the children’s film as a genre—he differentiates it from the family films he discussed in his earlier work, The Hollywood Family Film (2012). Children’s films remain one of the most misunderstood areas within our field. Although they have been widely discussed by scholars interested in questions of adaptation, representation, and ideology, we rarely discuss what makes a children’s ... Read More

  • The Victorian Era in Twenty-First Century Children’s and Adolescent
           
    • Abstract: Sonya Sawyer Fritz and Sara K. Day’s fascinating collection, The Victorian Era in Twenty-First Century Children’s and Adolescent Literature and Culture, provocatively questions the purposes of twenty-first century adaptations and appropriations of Victorian texts. To this end, it examines how the literary figure of the child serves as a nexus between Victorian notions of childhood and more contemporary visions of young people. The essays anthologized in this collection—which study such various forms as board books, film, and young adult novels—“suggest that we struggle now, as the Victorians did then, to assert a cohesive understanding of youth and thus young readers, and that this lack of cohesion is a result of ...

  • Child Pain, Migraine, and Invisible Disability by Susan A. Honeyman
           (review)
    • Abstract: I cannot write a dispassionate review of this book. I read sections of this book aloud to my partner, who was my companion through twelve years of migraine. I wept in recognition and fulminated on behalf of my fellow migraineurs. I became intensely angry on behalf of today’s child migraineurs for whom not only many things not have become better, but for whom modern ideologies of education have created an increasingly hostile environment. This book needs to be in paperback and Kindle, and a copy needs to be handed to every medical student and teacher.Childhood Pain, Migraine, and Invisible Disability is an intervention in childhood studies and in the medical humanities. It reminds us that behind the idea of the ... Read More

  • Screen Adaptations and the Politics of Childhood: Transforming
           Children’s Literature into Film by Robyn McCallum (review)
    • Abstract: Robyn McCallum’s monograph Screen Adaptations and the Politics of Childhood: Transforming Children’s Literature into Film is an exciting contribution to the area of adaptation studies. Although, as McCallum notes in her introduction, “texts produced for children and teenagers are late to arrive to the ballroom of film and adaptation studies” (3), the twenty-first century nevertheless has witnessed an increasing number of excellent studies of film adaptations of children’s literature. To this end, McCallum’s book productively calls attention to how film adaptations variously remain faithful to, distort, or resist the themes and underpinnings of both classic and lesser-known works of children’s literature. The focus ... Read More

  • Fantasies of Neglect: Imagining the Urban Child in American Film and
           Fiction by Pamela Robertson Wojcik (review)
    • Abstract: Pamela Robertson Wojcik’s latest book, Fantasies of Neglect: Imagining the Urban Child in American Film and Fiction, focuses on a collection of examples of urban children and the “fantasies of neglect” that inform the urban child archetype, as well as shifts in that representation throughout history. She samples texts across target audience ages, genres, and traditions of boys’ and girls’ stories.Although scholarship on representations of urban children exist, most have been more general explorations of filmic children, such as Childhood and Cinema by Vicky Levbeau (2008) and Karen Lury’s The Child in Film (2010), or explored childhood through the lens of motherhood, as in Lucy Fischer’s Cinematernity (1996).

  • Playing with America’s Doll: A Cultural Analysis of the American Girl
           Collection by Emilie Zaslow (review)
    • Abstract: In her 2017 monograph, Playing with America’s Doll: A Cultural Analysis of the American Girl Doll Collection, Emilie Zaslow undertakes a comprehensive study of the American Girl dolls, books, and merchandising in order to analyze their reception and historical importance. This is a vast undertaking, requiring both depth and breadth, but Zaslow manages it capably, utilizing her background in American Studies, Women’s Studies, and Media, Culture and Communication to provide effective critical lenses to examine all things American Girl. Zaslow combines scholarly critique of the American Girl books with feminist media analysis of the dolls and other companion merchandise. Additionally, she employs empirical analysis ... Read More
