Sometime during the middle or the last century a number of American writers became interested in what was known as "local color" writing and attempts were made to study, analyze, and comprehend the various regions of the America landscape. Along with this came an increase in the use of dialects, and writers attempted to capture the essence of a particular locale through the language of its inhabitants. One of the most interesting aspects of this movement was the increased concern with Negro life, habits, and language.
