SHORT STORIES

War, an excerpt from Let’s Make A Mulatto: A Guide to Swirling
synopsis: This excerpt from “War” follows seventeen-year-old Mercy Emerson a few weeks after the end of World War II. It is one of the four short stories featured in my 2013 Africana Studies (Williams College) senior thesis, which takes an imaginative look at how interracial relationships between black women and white men have and have not changed over time, specifically in the United States. “War” is titled not only after the war that frames the story, but also serves as a metaphor for the internal and external battles that Mercy has to fight. This story was to give voice to a woman that many would deem invisible, unworthy, and lack agency because of her status as black and female in 1940s Mississippi Delta. It also pays homage to a part of history that tends to be forgotten or fails to be discussed due to the influence of slavery and racial ideologies in the United States.
