Three African-American historical calendars

by PBA Galleries Auctions & Appraisers

January 16, 2014

San Francisco, CA, USA

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Includes:“The [NAACP] Crisis Calendar, 1917 / Noteworthy Personages of Negro Blood”. 7x10, with color cover page and 11 (of 12) string-tied monthly pages, lacking December. Also defective in lacking the portraits of Toussaint L’Ouverture, Alexander Pushkin, Phillis Wheatley, Alexandre Dumas and Robert Brown Elliot which have been cut out, though all accompanying text is still present.“Famous People in Negro History Calendar 1956” (Ebon Enterprises) 5½x8½. 32pp. complete. Besides the illustrated cover and title pages and several advertisements for Hudgins Wine and Liquor Store in Harlem, opposite each monthly page is a full-page color illustration, signed “Carter”“1985 Famous Black Americans Historical Calendar” (Schlitz Brewing Co., Milwaukee) 14x19½. 12 monthly pages, each with an 8x13" color portrait and biographic note, in addition to historical notes of interest for almost every day of the year.Three Examples of Black history calendars which span more than half a century. Only a few of the rare limited edition Crisis Calendars, sponsored and sold by the NAACP Crisis magazine of W.E.B.DuBois from about 1912 to 1921 were historical; the 1912 issue pictured a pretty and “dainty” “Crisis girl”; 1918 showed “various types of colored people” in different parts of America, with quotes from a Creole poet; 1919 had illustrations of Negro babies and children, and 1921 “elegant pictures of beautiful and attractive” Negro homes. Three decades later, the Harlem-sponsored calendar coincided with the emergence of the modern Civil Rights movement, while, in the 1970s, Schlitz was one of several corporations which issued Black historical calendars (as well as calendars appealing to Mexican-American and Puerto Rican beer-drinkers.). It’s interesting to note the famous (and not so famous) figures featured in these calendars: Frederick Douglass appears in all three; Benjamin Banneker and actor Ira Aldridge in two. The 1917 calendar, based on “Negro blood”, includes ancient Egyptian Pharoahs, the Haitian L’Ouverture, the Russian Pushkin and the French Dumas as well as Americans Crispus Attucks, Phillis Wheatley, Paul Laurence Dunbar and Booker T. Washington; in 1956, Haitian Henri Christophe joins Americans George Washington Carver, Reconstruction Senator Blanch[e] Bruce, slave revolt leader Nat Turner, pianist Blind Tom Bethune, inventor Jan Matzeliger, boxer Tom Molineaux, and Surgeon Dr. Daniel Hale Williams; while 1975 adds Scott Joplin, Mary McLeod Bethune and Harriet Tubman.

Condition Report: Some wear and tear from handling, some lacking (see above); mostly very good.
