Charles Waddell Chesnutt... African American lawyer, author and social reformer (1858-1932), wrote The House Behind The Cedars (1900). He is considered one of the pioneers in writing on racial themes.

Charles Waddell Chesnutt was born on 20 June, 1858 in Cleveland, Ohio, to parents Andrew Jackson Chesnutt and Ann Maria Sampson (d.1871), by that time freed blacks. His brother Lewis was born two years later and his sister Lillian was born in 1871. His grandfather was white, and Chesnutt's sometimes controversial stories deal with the issue of people who were legally black but could "pass" themselves as white due to the fact that their skin was so light.

***
Although he was the first African-American writer of fiction to gain acceptance by America's white literary establishment, Charles W. Chesnutt has been eclipsed in popularity by other writers who later rose to prominence during the Harlem Renaissance. Recently, this pathbreaking American writer has been receiving an increasing amount of attention. Two of his novels, Paul Marchand, F.M.C. (completed in 1921) and The Quarr" (completed in 1928), were considered too incendiary to be published during Chesnutt's lifetime. Their publication now provides us not only the opportunity to read these two bookspreviously missing from Chesnutt's oeuvre but also the chance to appreciate better the intellectual progress of this literary pioneer. Chesnutt was the author of many other works, including The Conjure Woman & Other Conjure Tales, The House Behind the Cedars, The Marrow Tradition, and Mandy Oxendine. Princeton University Press also published To Be an Author: Letters of Charles W. Chesnutt, 1889-1905 (1997).
