Scope and arrangement
The Nella Larsen Letters consist of two letters written by this author to Edward Wasserman and deal with the most spectacular African American social event of the decade, the 1928 wedding of Countee Cullen and W.E.B. DuBois' daughter, Yolande. The incompatible couple was divorced in 1930.|||The letters pertain to a pre-nuptial party Larsen gave at her home, to which Wasserman was invited. Larsen also mentions a review of her book, "Quicksand.".
