Dunbar as a novelist avoided the problems associated with negroes in his life time, this is clearly demonstrated in his first novel, The Uncalled, which to many was " a mediocre novel about whites." Dark Symphony Negro Literature in America p. 37. " This novel depicts an orphan boy who accepts the study of the ministry, but his inner spirit forces him to rebel against the bigotry of small town life." (Whiteman ).
