Born to former slaves in Dayton, Ohio, Dunbar is best remembered for his poem “We Wear The Mask.” His story is the story of the African American experience around the turn of the century. The man abolitionist Frederick Douglass called “the most promising young colored man in America,” wrote widely and published essays critical of Jim Crow laws, lynching and what was commonly called “The Negro Problem.”
