     ’Jacob Lawrence, artist, was born in Atlantic City, NJ, on this  date September 7, 1917. Lawrence became interested in  painting at age 13. Lawrence referred to his style as “dynamic  cubism,” though by his own account the primary influence was  not so much French art as the shapes and colors of  Harlem. Lawrence is among the best-known twentieth century  African American painters.’

‘Most African American surgeons during the war were assigned to military hospitals or recruiting stations since many white surgeons would not serve alongside black surgeons in the field or be their subordinates. John V. DeGrasse, one of only two African American physicians who received a commission in the army, was the only black surgeon to serve in the field with his regiment. A physician from Massachusetts, DeGrasse received his medical degree from Maine Medical College and served as an assistant surgeon with the 35th United States Colored Infantry.’

‘Nat Turner, revolutionary freedom-fighter, began his famous slave revolt in Southampton County, VA, on this date August 21, 1831. The uprising shocked white Southerners, who responded with bloody and ruthless retaliation against enslaved African Americans. This book and the events it recounted ignited a debate on slavery in the South and led to further restrictions being imposed on Southern blacks. Unsupervised gatherings were banned in an attempt to prevent future such uprisings. The book itself was banned in some parts of the South.’
