Scope and Contents of the Materials

The papers of Tom Dent provide a rich documentary source in the areas of African American literature and theater, the Civil Rights Movement, and the society and culture of New Orleans. The collection encompasses 149 linear feet of correspondence, literary manuscripts, oral history interviews, photographs, financial records, and memorabilia generated by one of New Orleans' most treasured poets, playwrights, and oral historians.

Dent was a prolific writer of letters, poetry, and prose throughout his lifetime. The papers span over thirty years of African American literature through his correspondence with editors, writers, and artists. The papers are a resource for the topics of the Black Arts Movement, the Free Southern Theater in New Orleans, the Umbra Writers' Workshop, and are rich in narratives about New Orleans society, culture, and the Black community. The papers are a strong source for the study of discrimination and racism in the United States, particularly in the area of the disenfranchisement of Black artists and writers.

Dent's literary works encompass approximately 331 drafts of original poems and 289 journals and notebooks, often focusing on Black identity, New Orleans, and civil rights. Dent also wrote short stories, essays, and book, film, and play reviews, which account for approximately 190 manuscripts in the collection. Other literary projects covered in the collection include the unpublished manuscript drafts of Andrew Young's autobiography, Easy Burden: the Civil Rights Movement and the Transformation of America and Dent's book Southern Journey: A Return to the Civil Rights Movement. Southern Journey documents historic African American communities and the era of civil rights in what Dent considered the "Deep South," the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Accompanying the manuscripts are 905 audiotapes of oral history interviews used for these two volumes, as well as three grant funded oral history projects, conducted in the late 1970s and early 1980s, focused on the river communities of Louisiana, civil rights workers in Mississippi, and Acadian and jazz musicians of New Orleans. The audiovisual collection also includes numerous poetry readings, lectures, and special events, such as festivals, brass bands, and funerals documenting the uniqueness of New Orleans Black community and culture.

The papers also include photographs, financial records, and collected memorabilia, which are interrelated to Dent's correspondence, literary manuscripts, and the audiovisual collection.

Biographical Note

Tom Dent, New Orleans-born poet, essayist, playwright, teacher, and oral historian was an active participant in the Black Arts and Civil Rights Movements. He was a leading literary figure in New Orleans, publishing two books of poetry, Magnolia Street (1976) and Blue Lights and River Songs (1982), and a prolific oral historian, whose work culminated with the publishing of his book, Southern Journey: A Return to the Civil Rights Movement (1997).

Thomas Covington Dent was born on March 20, 1932, to Albert Walter Dent and Ernestine Jessie Covington Dent, and was the oldest of three sons. Dr. Albert W. Dent was the president of Dillard University (1941-1969). Jessie Covington Dent was a trained classical pianist originally from Houston, Texas, and trained at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and a fellow of the Juilliard Musical Foundation. The Dent's were a prominent New Orleans family active in the Black community and often hosts to well-known individuals of the civil rights era.

Tom Dent graduated from Gilbert Academy in 1947 at the age of fifteen. He attended Morehouse College, receiving a Bachelors of Arts in political science in 1952. During his time at Morehouse, he was the editor of the college's literary newspaper, The Maroon Tiger. He also worked as a news reporter for The Houston Informer (1950-1951) while at Morehouse. Dent continued his studies in political science at Syracuse University (1952-1956), and while there became a fan of the music of David Brubeck. Dent served as a Private First Class (PFC) in the United States Army at the Ireland Army Hospital in Fort Knox, Kentucky (1957-1959), and during this time participated in a Writer's Digest short story course through the mail.

Dent chose to discontinue his studies in Syracuse and moved to New York to become immersed in writing. Early on during the New York years (1959-1965) he became involved in political activities that coincided to the emergence of Black Nationalism. Dent became a news reporter for the New York Age (1959) and was appointed press liaison for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (1960-1963) by Thurgood Marshall. This position took Dent to several hot spots of the Civil Rights Movement, including Jackson, Mississippi, where he became involved in getting James Meredith admitted as the first Black student of the University of Mississippi in Oxford.

Through the community in Harlem, Dent helped to produce a journal called On Guard for Freedom, which represented an early Black Nationalist artists' group and included members such as LeRoi Jones (Amiri Baraka), Harold Cruse, and Calvin Hicks. Involvement with this group and its activities lead to the creation of the Umbra Writers' Workshop (1962-1964) on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, for which Dent was a founding member. The roots of the Black arts literary movement came from the Umbra collective of young writers involved in the Black Arts Repertory Theatre/School founded by LeRoi Jones (Amiri Baraka). The Umbra Writers' Workshop members included Steve Cannon, Tom Dent, Al Haynes, David Henderson, Ishmael Reed, and Askia M. Toure (Roland Snelling). The group's literary magazine, Umbra, featured poetry and other genres of creative writing, and became one of the earliest and most prominent "little magazines" that focused on African American writing.

Tom Dent returned to New Orleans in 1965 after the disbanding of the Umbra workshop. He did not intend to stay in New Orleans, but discovered new things about the city that were different from when he had left fifteen years earlier. One major discovery was the Free Southern Theater (FST) founded by John O'Neal and Gilbert Moses as an integrated Tougaloo Drama Workshop at Tougaloo College, Mississippi, in 1963. Dent had met John O'Neal previously in New York and by the time he returned to the south, the FST was based in New Orleans. Dent became the Associate Director (1966-1970) and authored a one-act play, Ritual Murder (1967). The FST was organized as an integrated touring company that used volunteers to play for civil rights centers of the south, particularly in Mississippi. The administration of the company was often divided as to its direction. Gilbert Moses attempted in 1965 to reorganize the FST into an all-Black company with its base in New Orleans; however, John O'Neal and the fundraising committee were based in New York. The new Black orientation of the theater caused confusion for the integrated New York-based fundraising committee, and by 1967 there were conflicts about the direction of the theater between the groups in New Orleans and New York. The touring concept coming from New York at the time was to hire professional Black actors from New York for the touring season. As the direction of the theater continued to be in conflict throughout the late sixties, Dent's development of the New Orleans-based community workshop program progressed.

Dent's journey of self-discovery found resolution in New Orleans with a sense of belonging to the South and to its Black community. As the core group of the FST left for New York and the administration of the theater fractured, Dent became convinced the idea of his work and its sense of the South must continue to be done in the South. The FST community workshop program, established in 1967, was spearheaded by Dent's desire to develop an artistic project within the New Orleans community. The acting and writing workshops cultivated local talent to produce quality work for the theater's use, with multiple programs organized separately from the touring company. The result of the program was the BLKARTSOUTH creative writing and acting workshops and Nkombo literary magazine. The group of writers and actors was jointly directed by Dent and Bob "Big Daddy" Costley and became BLKARTSOUTH in 1969. The goals of the workshop were to develop new literary and theatrical materials for use by the FST. The performing ensemble performed poetry and short plays throughout the South and produced five mimeographed books of poetry in 1969.

Nkombo literary magazine, published in nine issues from 1969 to 1974 in New Orleans, was unique with the purpose of producing plays and poetry to enhance the work of Black theater and literature during the period of the Black Arts Movement. A predecessor issue in December of 1968, under the title Echoes from the Gumbo, published the first works of the members of the workshop program. Dent was the main force behind the magazine as founder and co-editor along with a young member of the group Val Ferdinand (Kalamu ya Salaam). Dent envisioned a collective of southern Black writers who would be creatively nurtured within the community. BLKARTSOUTH separated from the FST and evolved into the Southern Black Cultural Alliance with the partnership between Tom Dent and Kalamu ya Salaam solidified in Nkombo Publications (1971). Dent hoped a regional association of southern community theaters and programs would provide financial support and an exchange of ideas for southern writers. At the time of the last issue of Nkombo in 1974, Kalamu ya Salaam was focused on his work with the Black Collegian magazine and Dent was focusing on establishing the Congo Square Writer's Union and another literary journal, The Black River Journal (1977). Throughout the life of Nkombo, financial difficulties often delayed its publication.

Dent taught creative writing at Mary Holmes Junior College in West Point, Mississippi (1968-1970), and at the University of New Orleans (1979-1981). He was a community organizer for the Social Welfare Planning Council (1965-1966) to address relief efforts in the Lower Ninth Ward section of New Orleans after Hurricane Betsy. Dent also worked as the public relations officer (1971-1973) and Assistant to the Executive Director for Publications (1975-1978) for Total Community Action, a community service non-profit organization in New Orleans. He worked to complete a Masters degree in poetry and black literature at Goddard College in Vermont (1974). He married Roberta "Bobbi" Yancy, a friend he had met through the FST, on April 6, 1974, at Christ Chapel Riverside Church in New York. The couple was often separated by work and location and divorced in 1980. During this period, Dent's first volume of poetry, Magnolia Street (1976), was published and described by David Henderson as a "heavy trip through New Orleans." These poems were devoted to local places and events, such as the Mardi Gras parade of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, the lakefront, the balcony of the Orpheum Theater, and the local culture and society of New Orleans.

The mid-to-late seventies was a turning point in Dent's work as he became involved in documenting events through oral history projects. He received grants to conduct oral history projects of Mississippi civil rights workers (1978-1985) and interviews of New Orleans and Acadian musicians (1984). He worked with photographer Roy Lewis, to conduct oral histories documenting the isolated historic Louisiana Black communities along the Mississippi River from Phoenix to Donaldsonville (1976-1980). Lewis also worked as Dent's photographer for the Mississippi oral history project. Dent continued his literary work as co-founder of Callaloo (1976 - ), an African American southern journal of arts and letters, with Charles H. Rowell.

As early as 1979, Dent was working on the autobiography of his childhood friend, Andrew Young. Though he was officially hired as a consultant (1981-1982), he continued to work on the book until 1986. Dent traveled to Atlanta, Georgia, to conduct a series of interviews with Young, then researched New Orleans and civil rights era history for the draft of the book, with the working title "An Easy Burden" (1982).

The eighties continued to be a period of creative, community, and historical writing projects for Dent. He wrote a screenplay with Michael Goodwin entitled "Heaven Before I Die" (1984) and published another book of poetry, Blue Lights and River Songs (1982). Throughout Dent's life, he was a prolific writer of journals and notebooks. In 1986, he started work on a book with the working title "New Orleans Journal," which would encompass numerous prose sketches on New Orleans parades, streets, neighborhoods, funerals, politics, music, and portraits written from 1968 to 1975.

Dent was the executive director of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, Inc. (1987-1990). He wrote the documentary New Orleans Brass (1990), commissioned by the National Geographic Explorer television series, which was produced and directed by veteran filmmaker St. Clair Bourne. The production was coordinated by Kalamu ya Salaam and Bright Moments, Inc.

Oral history projects continued to dominate much of Dent's work as he set out again to document historic Black communities and the era of civil rights, by expanding his interviews beyond Mississippi and the River to encompass what he considered the "Deep South," the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina (1991-1996). The culmination of hundreds of interviews resulted in his book, Southern Journey: A Return to the Civil Rights Movement (1997).

Thomas Covington Dent died on June 6, 1998, at the age of 66 in New Orleans.

Series 4: Oral History and Audiovisual Collection, 1965-1998Add to your cart.

Dent's collection of oral histories, poetry readings, lectures, and performances are extensive, encompassing 905 individual audio recordings dating from 1965 to his passing in 1998. The bulk of the collection documents the modern Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s through three main oral history projects; the Mississippi Oral History Collection (1978-1983), the Andrew Young Oral History Collection (1980-1985), and the Southern Journey Oral History Collection (1992-1997). The main strengths of these interviews are the activities and projects of civil rights workers and organizations, first-hand accounts of police brutality and harassment, and the lives and trials of the African American community during this volatile and intense period in American history. The second focus of the collection is on jazz, particularly New Orleans jazz, the jazz funeral, brass bands, festivals, and local musicians. There are twenty years of recorded performances at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival (1974-1994), as well as individual performances at local venues throughout New Orleans. The third focus of the collection is on African American literature in the form of recorded poetry readings and lectures.

The oral history and audiovisual collection has been divided into five sub-series; Mississippi Oral History Collection (1978-1983), the Andrew Young Oral History Collection (1980-1985), the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival Collection (1974-1994), the Southern Journey Oral History Collection (1992-1997), and the Tom Dent Individual Audiovisual Collection (1965-1998). The bulk of the recordings are in the form of standard size audiocassettes, though there are microcassettes, open reel audiotape, and video recordings in VHS format within the collection.

Of note are 50 interviews with Andrew Young regarding his first-hand account as a participant in the Civil Rights Movement; SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference) involvement and activities; his friendship with Martin Luther King Jr.; as well as King's assassination in 1968. Interviews documenting the work of CORE (Congress of Racial Equality), SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee), Fannie Lou Hamer, and the Freedom Democratic Party are also found within the collection. Literary readings are extensive and include readings by Tom Dent, the Congo Square Poets, Kalamu ya Salaam, Edward Kamau Brathwaite, Keorapetse Kgositsile, David Henderson, Ishmael Reed, Lorenzo Thomas, and James Baldwin. Performances held throughout New Orleans dating from the 1970s include the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Abdullah Ibrahim, Danny Barker, Alvin Batiste, Walter Washington, Kidd Jordon, Ellis Marsalis, and Paul Robeson Jr.

Sub-Series 1: Mississippi Oral History Collection, 1978-1983Add to your cart.

This collection contains 47 individual narratives in standard audiocassette form of interviews with civil rights workers and members of the African American community twenty years after the most intensive days of the Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi. The interviews are arranged in general chronological order by year date and topics covered throughout the narratives include the beginnings of the Movement in Mississippi, civil rights workers activities and living conditions, harassment and violence against the community, politics, 1964 Freedom Summer, the Freedom Democratic Party and Fannie Lou Hamer, and CORE (Congress of Racial Equality) and SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) personnel and programs. Of note are a few narratives that detail the state of racial progress at the time of the interviews 15 to 20 years later in small Mississippi towns.

Dent's personal interest in the Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi was to capture the stories not covered by the broadcasting industry in America and evolved from his experiences touring with the Free Southern Theater in the late 1960s. He considered Mississippi at that time the "heart" of the southern Civil Rights Movement and realized a project to document the events, people, and places in Mississippi would be invaluable to the African American community and scholarly research by providing a historical record of the struggles for equality in America.

Interviewees of note include John Buffington and the involvement of SNCC; Matthew Suarez and the beginnings of CORE; Bob "Big Daddy" Costley regarding the Free Southern Theater and the Deacons for Defense in Jonesboro, Louisiana; Annie Devine, an early CORE worker in Canton; and Eunita Blackwell on early SNCC workers. Lastly, of interest are audiocassettes of the 1978 Tougaloo Symposium with Jerry Ward and Tom Dent, with presentations and discussions by Annie Devine and Unita Blackwell.

The Andrew Young Oral History Collection encompasses 50 individual interviews conducted from 1980 to 1985 as part of Dent's work on the autobiography of Young.  As early as 1979, Dent was working on the autobiography of his childhood friend, Andrew Young, though he wasn't officially hired as a consultant until 1981 to 1982 and he continued to work on the book until 1986. Dent traveled to Atlanta, Georgia, to conduct a series of interviews with Young, then researched New Orleans and civil rights era history for the draft of the book, with the working title "An Easy Burden."

The Young interviews provide a first hand account of the events, leadership, and various campaigns of the Civil Rights Movement, as well as Young's childhood, work in the National Council of Churches, as a Congressman from Georgia, and United Nations Ambassador. The interviews provide numerous portraits of the SCLC leadership and civil rights workers including Hosea Williams, Ralph Abernathy, Wyatt Walker, Fannie Lou Hamer, Randolph Blackwell, Dorothy Cotton, Stan Levinson and of course Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The events and campaigns of the Civil Rights Movement are detailed for St. Augustine (Florida), Albany (Georgia), Selma (Alabama) and the Voting Rights Campaign, the Chicago Movement, and the Meredith March. Young provides detailed accounts of the FBI's harassment of Martin Luther King and SCLC staff, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis in 1968, and comments on what Young believes were the factors that produced the Civil Rights Movement of the sixties. Additional topics within the interviews include the Poor People's Campaign, the Vietnam Peace Movement, Young's Congressional Campaign and work as the UN Ambassador to Africa. Additional interviews within the oral history collection include interviews with Young's wife, Jean Childs Young, Dorothy Cotton, and Stoney Cooks.

Sub-Series 4: Southern Journey Oral History Collection, 1990-1992, 1994, 1997Add to your cart.

The inspiration to pursue the documentary and book project Southern Journey: A Return to the Civil Rights Movement stemmed from Dent's experience with the Mississippi Oral History Project (1978-1983) and the amount of research and writing materials he had compiled during his work on Andrew Young’s autobiography. This collection of oral histories, the bulk of which were done from 1990 to 1992, contains 174 standard size audiocassettes and 52 microcassettes of narratives by individuals and civil rights workers describing the activities and people involved in the Civil Rights Movement in the southern states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi. The narratives also detail daily life for the African American community during this volatile period in the United States.

The collection is arranged according to Dent's sections of his book, which was done by town and state according to his travels to Greensboro (North Carolina), Orangeburg and Charleston (South Carolina), St. Augustine (Florida), Albany (Georgia), Selma (Alabama) and various towns in Mississippi. The interviews are arranged in alphabetical order within these town and state groups. The bulk of the microcassettes located at the end of the collection contain Dent's manuscript dictation for the book, with topics noted when available on the cassette labels. Interviews of note include, John Marshall Kilimanjaro (Greensboro, North Carolina), Annie Devine (Canton, Mississippi), L.C. Dorsey (Mound Bayou, Mississippi), and Andrew Young (Atlanta, Georgia). Many interviewees from Mississippi have earlier narratives found within the Mississippi Oral History Collection series.

Sub-Series 5: Tom Dent Individual Audiovisual Collection, 1965-1998Add to your cart.

The largest of the audiovisual collections encompassing 496 standard size audiocassettes, 19 one-quarter inch open reel audiotapes, and 25 video recordings in VHS format of lectures, poetry readings, interviews, festivals, and performances Dent created from 1965 to 1998. The topic strengths of the collection are New Orleans art and music and African American literature, mainly poetry. Numerous recordings of New Orleans jazz funerals can be found throughout, as well as jazz and brass band performances, which were a main focus of Dent.
