The Pains of Catastrophe in the Flooding of Buffalo Creek, Virginia

An Ubiquitous Poem, We Wear the Mask by Paul Lawrence Dunbar

- We Wear the Mask, written in 1886 by Paul Lawrence Dunbar, is a ubiquitous poem that has a copious amount of interpretations; nonetheless, one of the most prevalent interpretation of the poem is that of Paul Dunbar’s background.
