Can Anything Beat White?

Elisabeth Petry

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter focuses on Harriet Georgiana James and her correspondence. Harriet, born on May 10, 1879, died of consumption before the age of twenty-three. Consumption had begun to ravage her lungs even before she arrived at Hampton Institute and Normal School, but she remained “cheerful, hopeful, and ambitious, she did not seem to see the dark side of her illness at all.”

Keywords:   Harriet Georgiana James, consumption, Hampton Institute, Normal School, correspondence, letters
