About the Author

Julia Peterkin (1880-1961) was the author of three novels, a collection of short stories, and a nonfiction collection of essays entitled Roll, Jordan, Roll. She won the Pulitzer Prize.


Pulitzer Prize winner Peterkin was a pioneer in writing candidly, yet unsentimentally, about black women, including their sensuality. Debuting in 1924 and 1928, respectively, these two titles offer a collection of short stories and a novel.

[Peterkin] pioneered in demonstrating the literary potential for serious depictions of the African-American experience.

--Charles Joyner "Coastal Carolina University "

Peterkin is a southern white woman, but she has the eye and the ear to see beauty and know truth.

--W. E. B. Du Bois
