Pauline Hopkins

a.k.a. Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins, Sarah A. Allen *

Author Code: APEH

Born: (?), 1859 - Portland, Maine, USA

Died: Aug. 13, 1930 - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA

Educated at the Girl's High School in Portland, Hopkins entered and won an essay contest after completing her second year. She performed as an actress and singer, but by the 1900s she focused on writing. Her first work was a musical play, Slaves' Escape; or the Underground Railroad, first performed in 1880. She published what is thought to be the first black mystery story, Talma Gordon, in 1900. Her first novel Contending Forces: A Romance Illustrative of Negro Life North and South, was published in 1900. She became involved with the Colored American Magazine and contributed serialized novels, short stories and some essays over the next three years. In her later years she worked as a stenographer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She died from burns she received in a house fire. Hopkins was a major force in black literature at the turn of the century and influenced many black writers. Her other works include Hagar's Daughter (1901-2), Winona (1902-3) and Of One Blood (1903).
