Chesnutt's Works





Site Info

Currently, we are processing over two hundred digital images of manuscripts from the Charles Chesnutt Collection in the Fisk University Library's Special Collections. These will be added in late 2007 and early 2008.

Click here to go to the Manuscript Index (still in development) of manuscript images. From this index page the thumbnails are being linked to transcriptions and larger images of the manuscripts.

Below is an image of the first page from an early manuscript for "Rena," the story that will eventually become The House Behind the Cedars
