The Community Bulletin Saturday, January 6, 1968 J/Y )/ CHARLES WADDELL CHESNUTT "Pioneer of the Color Line" CHFRLES 1JADDELL CHESNUTT was the first American Negro to approach the short story and the novel as a professional artist fully aware of their artistic requirements. His work was distinguished by its impartial and unsparing portrayal of southern ilegroes and whites and by his pioneering concern with color distinctions among Negroes. Chesnutt was made the principal of the State High School for Negroes at Fayettuevlle, North Carolina when he was only 22 years of age. He spent some time studying stenography, not knowing that later this would be the major source of his income.
