Dracula

Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. It introduced the character of Count Dracula and established many conventions of subsequent vampire fantasy; the novel tells the story of Dracula's attempt to move from Transylvania to England so that he may find new blood and spread the undead curse, of the battle between Dracula and a small group of people led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Dracula has been assigned to many literary genres including vampire literature, horror fiction, gothic fiction, invasion literature; the novel has spawned numerous theatrical and television interpretations. The story is told in an epistolary format, as a series of letters, diary entries, newspaper articles, ships' log entries, whose narrators are the novel's protagonists, supplemented with newspaper clippings relating events not directly witnessed; the events portrayed in the novel take place chronologically and in England and Transylvania within the same year between 3 May and 6 November.

A short note at the end of the final chapter is written 7 years after the events outlined in the novel. The tale begins with Jonathan Harker, a newly qualified English solicitor, visiting Count Dracula at his castle in the Carpathian Mountains on the border of Transylvania and Moldavia, to provide legal support for a real estate transaction overseen by Harker's employer, Mr Peter Hawkins of Exeter. Impressed by Dracula's gracious manners, Harker soon realizes that he is Dracula's prisoner. Wandering the Count's castle against Dracula's admonition, Harker encounters three vampire sisters, from whom he is rescued by Dracula. Harker soon realizes that Dracula himself is a vampire. After the preparations are made, Dracula abandons Harker to the sisters. Harker escapes from the castle with his life. Dracula boards a Russian ship, the Demeter, taking with him boxes of Transylvanian soil, which he requires in order to regain his strength; the ship weighs anchor at Varna and runs aground on the shores of Whitby in north-east England.

The captain's log narrates the gradual disappearance of the entire crew, until the captain alone remained, himself bound to the helm to maintain course. An animal resembling "a large dog" is seen leaping ashore, it is learned that Dracula purchased multiple estates under the alias'Count De Ville' throughout London and devised to distribute the boxes to each of them utilizing transportation services as well as moving them himself. He does this to secure for himself lairs and the boxes of earth would be used as his graves which would grant safety and rest during times of feeding and replenishing his strength. Harker's fiancée, Mina Murray, is staying with her friend Lucy Westenra, holidaying in Whitby. Lucy receives three marriage proposals from Dr. John Seward, Quincey Morris, Arthur Holmwood. Lucy accepts Holmwood's proposal while turning down Seward and Morris. Dracula communicates with Seward's patient, Renfield, an insane man who wishes to consume insects, spiders and rats to absorb their life force.

Renfield is able to detect Dracula's presence and supplies clues accordingly. Soon Dracula is indirectly shown to be stalking Lucy; as time passes she begins to suffer from episodes of sleepwalking and dementia, as witnessed by Mina. When Lucy begins to waste away suspiciously, Seward invites his old teacher, Abraham Van Helsing, who determines the true cause of Lucy's condition, he diagnoses her with acute blood-loss. Van Helsing prescribes numerous blood transfusions to which he, Seward and Arthur all contribute over time. Van Helsing prescribes garlic flowers to be placed throughout her room and weaves a necklace of withered garlic blossoms for her to wear; however she continues to waste away – appearing to lose blood every night. Van Helsing attempts to protect Lucy with garlic but fate thwarts him each night, whether Lucy's mother removes the garlic from her room, or Lucy herself does so in her restless sleep. While both doctors are absent and her mother are attacked by a wolf and Mrs Westenra, who has a heart condition, dies of fright.

The doctors find two small puncture marks about Lucy's neck, which Dr Seward is at a loss to understand. After Lucy dies, Van Helsing places a golden crucifix over her mouth, ostensibly to delay or prevent Lucy's vampiric conversion. Fate conspires against him again when Van Helsing finds the crucifix in the possession of one of the servants who stole it off Lucy's corpse. Following Lucy's death and burial, the newspapers report children being stalked in the night by a "bloofer lady". Van Helsing, knowing Lucy has become a vampire, confides in Arthur and Morris; the suitors and Van Helsing track her down and, after a confrontation with her, stake her heart, behead her, fill her mouth with garlic. Around the same time, Jonathan Harker arrives from Budapest, where Mina marries him after his escape, he and Mina join the campaign against Dracula; the vampire hunters stay at Dr. Seward's residence, holding nightly meetings and providing reports based on each of their various tasks. Mina discovers that each of their journals and letters collectively contain clues through which they can track Dracula down.

She tasks herself with collecting them, researching newspaper clippings, fitting the most relevant entries into chronological order and typing out copies to distribute to each of the party which they are to study. Jonathan Harker tracks down the shipments of boxed graves and the estates which Dracula has purchased in order to store them. Van Helsing conducts research along with Dr. Seward to ana

Angelo Herndon

Angelo Braxton Herndon was an African-American labor organizer arrested and convicted of insurrection after attempting to organize black and white industrial workers in 1932 in Atlanta, Georgia. The prosecution case rested on Herndon's possession of "communist literature", which police found in his hotel room. Herndon was defended by the International Labor Defense, the legal arm of the Communist Party, which hired two young local attorneys, Benjamin J. Davis Jr. and John H. Geer, provided guidance. Davis became prominent in leftist circles. Over a five-year period, Herndon's case twice reached the United States Supreme Court, which ruled that Georgia's insurrection law was unconstitutional, as it violated First Amendment rights of free speech and assembly. Herndon became nationally prominent because of his case, Southern justice was under review. By the end of the 1940s he moved to the Midwest and lived there quietly. Born into a poor family in southwestern Ohio, Angelo Herndon endured racial discrimination in his city, where African Americans have been a minority.

He moved to Kentucky at the age of 14 to work in the mines. By 1930 he was working in Birmingham, for the Tennessee Coal and Railroad Company; as a youth, Herndon was given a copy of the Communist Manifesto by a white worker in the Unemployed Councils, a group affiliated with the Communist Party. He was impressed with the Party's campaigning in the South to promote labor reform and interracial cooperation, its teachings on racial equality and class conflict, he joined the party in 1930. After being arrested several times in Alabama for labor organizing, Herndon was sent to Atlanta, Georgia in the fall of 1931. Herndon went to Atlanta as a labor organizer for the Unemployment Council, his involvement with the Communist Party brought him national prominence after he was arrested in Atlanta, convicted of insurrection, his case twice reached the US Supreme Court on appeal. He campaigned to organize working-class whites to become politically active, he solicited whites alike for membership in an integrated Communist Party of Atlanta.

Nearly 1,000 unemployed workers, both black and white, demonstrated at the federal courthouse on June 30, 1932, seeking resumption of relief payments. Officials were alarmed that the protest was biracial, as it crossed the segregated lines of the Jim Crow South, they began to monitor known and suspected radicals as the city became more crowded with rural migrants. On July 11, Herndon checked on his mail at the Post Office and was arrested by two Atlanta police detectives. A few days his hotel room was searched, Communist Party publications were found. Herndon was charged with insurrection under a Georgia Reconstruction era law, he was held for nearly six months in jail and was released on Christmas Eve, after his bail of $7,000 was paid by the International Labor Defense, a legal organization affiliated with the Communist Party USA. An all-white jury found Herndon guilty at trial on January 18, 1933. Hired by the ILD, his young attorneys were John H. Geer; the International Juridical Association provided support by reviewing their brief for Herndon.

Herndon was sentenced to 18 to 20 years of hard labor "on the chain gang."On December 7, 1935, Herndon's conviction was overturned by the state appeals court and he was released on bail. After the Georgia Supreme Court upheld his original conviction, Herndon went on a national speaking tour in 1936 to promote his case while his defense appealed it to the Supreme Court, he appeared before crowds in Colorado. On April 26, 1937, a narrow five-to-four majority of the United State Supreme Court ruled in Herndon's favor, striking down Georgia's insurrection statute as unconstitutional, as it violated the First Amendment, which protects individual's right to free speech and the right of assembly. Herndon was greeted as a hero by a crowd of 6,000 well-wishers when he returned by train to Pennsylvania Station in New York City. Several leading Communist Party officials were on hand to welcome him. On October 13, 1937 Angelo's brother Milton was killed fighting for the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War.

Like Angelo, Milton was a Communist Party member. Milton had sought to use his previous experience as a National Guard while in Spain. In the 1940s, Herndon founded the Negro Publication Society of America, which published the radical African-American newspaper The People's Advocate in San Francisco, among other works, but by the end of the 1940s, Herndon left the Party.
