Nugget #121 -- White-Washed Pulps


Historically, the world of the pulps is a very white-washed world, 
much like the movies and radio drama of the time. It’s not that 
people of color didn’t exist to inhabit stories of The Shadow, 
Secret Agent X, or Philip Marlowe. It’s that they didn’t have 
the social power to prove they mattered to the narrative.
