“Man on the Firing Line” challenges current notions about the audience for, and the content, production, and dissemination of, politically engaged US black fiction. The project contributes to the critical reassessment not only of Sutton Griggs, but also of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century African American and US literary, print, and religious culture. This grant will support research in key places connected to Griggs, including Dallas, Nashville, Memphis, Philadelphia, and Chicago.
