A literary criticism of the 1928 novel "Dark Princess" by W. E. B. Du Bois is presented. It describes the relationship between the characters Matthew Towns, an African American, and Kautilya, an Asian Indian princess. The author focuses on the role of color and complexion in relation to race and womanhood in the U.S. in the 1920s. The Harlem Renaissance and representations of what the author calls New Negro Womanhood are also considered.
