Re: Name Origins
You may wish to search the Internet for discussions of the Blue Vein Societies. I found the following:
Black Life in the Era of Segregation: Accommodation and Resistance
THE WIFE OF HIS YOUTH by Charles W. Chesnutt
Other sites discuss the existence of the Blue Vein Societies as told through books, plays etc. I found, however, no actual historical accounts of location, membership or other hard facts. I suspect scholarly work on the subject exists and would be glad to explore this further and report back.
