Tumblr Thread Tackles The 'Forgotten' Blackness Of French Author Alexandre Dumas

After years of studying the works of famed author Alexandre Dumas - both fiction (The Three Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo) and nonfiction political writings - it's alarming that professors never told us that the French writer was black. And according to this Tumblr thread, we were not alone. The Hatian-born Dumas was a prolific hero of French literature. So why is his race not talked about? This thread deals with these injustices, and sheds light on Dumas' many accomplishments, his interests, and his unapologetic sass. Enjoy.
