Abstract

This essay advances same-sex romantic correspondence as a pre-Stonewall site of rhetoric’s queer extracurriculum. Grounded in archival research on African American women Addie Brown and Rebecca Primus, I argue their epistolary exchange was animated by queer erotics that enabled their participation in self-education for racial uplift.
