    Book Description:

    2019 Reprint of Edition First Serialized in Colored American Magazine From November 1902 thru January 1903. Hopkins tells the story of Reuel Briggs, a medical student who couldn’t care less about being black and lacked appreciation for African history until he found himself in Ethiopia on an archeological trip. His motive was to raid the country of lost treasures — which he did find in the ancient land. However, he discovered much more than he bargained for: the painful truth about blood, race, and the half of his history that was never told. Hopkins wrote the novel intending, in her own words, to "raise the stigma of degradation from [the Black] race." The title, Of One Blood, refers to the biological kinship of all human beings.
