Previous work discussing Black beauty has tended to concentrate on Black women's search for white beauty as a consequence of racialization. Without denying either the continuation of such aesthetics or their enduring power, this book uncovers the cracks in this hegemonic Black beauty. Drawing on detailed ethnographic research amongst British women of Caribbean heritage, this volume pursues a broad discussion of beauty within the Black diaspora contexts of the Caribbean, the UK, the United States and Latin America through different historical periods to the present day. With a unique exploration of beauty, race and identity politics, the author reveals how Black women themselves speak about, negotiate, inhabit, work on and perform Black beauty. As such, it will appeal not only to sociologists, but anyone working in the fields of race, ethnicity and post-colonial thought, feminism and the sociology of the body.

Black Beauty was written in 1877 and was subtitled "The Autobiography of a Horse." It quickly became known as the best-loved animal story. In addition to this, the book achieved its aim to "induce kindness, sympathy and an understanding treatment of horses." The story was used first by George Angell, founder of the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and then by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. At a time when horses were relied upon for transport, the horse was the animal most likely to be abused. This book, by telling the story through the eyes of the animal, changed people's attitudes.This abridged version comes with the original illustration on the front and with all the original illustrations in black and white throughout the book.

The story is narrated in the first person as an autobiographical memoir told by the titular horse named Black Beauty—beginning with his carefree days as a colt on an English farm with his mother, to his difficult life pulling cabs in London, to his happy retirement in the country. Along the way, he meets with many hardships and recounts many tales of cruelty and kindness. Each chapter recounts an incident in Black Beauty's life containing a lesson or moral typically related to the kindness, sympathy, and understanding treatment of horses, with Sewell's detailed observations and extensive descriptions of horse behaviour lending the novel a good deal of verisimilitude. While forthrightly teaching animal welfare, it also teaches how to treat people with kindness, sympathy, and respect. With fifty million copies sold, Black Beauty is one of the best-selling books of all time. Anna Sewell (1820-1878) was an English novelist, best known as the author of the classic 1877 novel Black Beauty. Anna was unable to stand without a crutch or to walk for any length of time because of an old injury. For greater mobility, she frequently used horse-drawn carriages, which contributed to her love of horses and concern for the humane treatment of animals.

*Writer''s point of view *Character details that have never been spoken about Black Beauty was born on a farm in the English countryside.He and his mother and the other field horses spent the first four years of his life there. The good farmer trains Beauty to wear a saddle and a bridle when he turns 4 and shows him how to bear a horse. Beauty is sold to Squire Gordon once the training is finished. Beauty makes friends with a pony called Merrylegs and a poorly behaved mare called Ginger at Squire Gordon''s home. Ginger''s former owners have treated her unfairly and exploited her, so she doesn''t trust people. When time passes, Beauty and Ginger are partnered and become good friends. Beauty thrives in his new home under the coachman''s guidance, John Manley, and becomes a favourite of his master and family. On many times, elegance proves its value. He fails to cross a bridge on a stormy night because he fears that something is wrong. The storm washed away the bridge. He saves the lives of John and Squire Gordon by trusting his intuition. The strength of Beauty makes Ginger get the courage to run to safety when a barn at a hotel catches fire. And when the mistress gets ill, it''s hard for Beauty to get the doctor back in time to save her. Squire Gordon is forced to sell Beauty amid all this because his wife gets too ill to stay in the country. Both Ginger and Beauty are sold to nearby Earl. This new home has a bearing rein that damages the neck of Beauty and makes driving the wagon tougher for him. Although the job is more complicated than in his old home, Beauty is well cared for until the stableman returns to London with his parents. The stables were rented to a man named Ruben Smith. Ruben fights alcoholism and slips back into his old vices one day. Drunk, Ruben flies Beauty with a loose boot, something he''d be easy enough to repair if he were sober. Beauty hurts his foot when the boot comes off and stumbles to his feet. Ruben, who hurts his head and dies, is thrown into the pit. The collision leaves Beauty on his knees with permanent scars. He is considered deficient and not good enough to be a horse in the carriage. Beauty is sold to a livery stable where it is rented to novice drives seeking a day carriage. He remains there until he is accepted by a lady. This man suggests buying Beauty from his friend, Mr. Barry. Mr. Barry doesn''t know how to look after a horse and hires a trainer to do the job for him. He hires the first person to steal the food of Beauty to feed his chickens. The second one is pointless and lazy. He''s not washing the stall of Beauty, which makes Beauty very sick. Jerry is not a wealthy man, but he works hard to support his family and takes care of his other cab horse, Beauty and Captain. Beauty always has to rest on Sundays and Jerry and his friends handle it very well. Beauty sees several masters abusing their horses during his time with Jerry. Beauty''s time with Jerry comes to an end when his master becomes ill and takes up a job in the country that is going to make life easier for him and give his family more opportunities. Beauty is being marketed as a carthorse. In his new position, he is working very hard and almost dies. Beauty is sure to need rest before he can return to work, but his master is not interested in using his time or money on Beauty and decides to sell it. When his granddaughter thinks they should help him, a man named Farmer Thoroughgood buys Beauty. Black Beauty returns to its old strength after many months of resting in the country, and Farmer Thoroughgood decides it''s time to sell it to a good home. Three women who are looking for a good, reliable horse bring him to the home. Joe Green, their groom, comes to observe Beauty and welcomes him. Joe worked under John Manly and remembers Black Beauty until they took their toll in years of bad treatment. He tells his mistresses that Beauty is a fine horse, and the women choose to keep it.
