Of One Blood: Or, the Hidden Self, by Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins (1859 - 1930)
This serialized novel by Pauline Hopkins was published in the November 1902, December 1902 and January 1903 issues of The Colored American Magazine. It follows Reuel Briggs, an African American man of mixed ethnic heritages, as he travels from the United States to Ethiopia in search of treasure and adventure. In Of One Blood: Or, the Hidden Self, Hopkins explores issues of identity, trauma, love, and spirituality as experienced and perceived by members of the African American community.

If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi. I will MC for you, but I don't think we can use your text source. It is a transcribed copy in google docs, and we need to use a copy of the original so the copyright date can be confirmed. I did a search and there is a reproduction of the original publication available at HathiTrust - https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=hvd.32044005012133&view=1up&seq=7

Do you need a PL or DPL for this project? I would be happy to help! (I have never done this before, but I was told that ~ in the title meant that someone may be needed, and I have reviewed the materials/quiz for PL).
