Chesnutt's stories were more complex than those of many of his contemporaries. He wrote about characters dealing with difficult issues of mixed race, "passing", illegitimacy, racial identities and social place throughout his career. The issues were especially pressing during the social volatility of Reconstruction and late 19th-century southern society.
