NPA , Atchison, C. The specific threats varied: pestilence, poverty and sexual predation. The last of these fueled an outcry against "white slavery" which involved the coercion — or perhaps only the temptation — of women into prostitution, sometimes with men of the same race however race was defined , sometimes with others. But, as Brian Donovan argues in White Slave Crusades , analyses of such movements are too often infused with "a form of modernization theory whereby the expressive, creative, and ideational aspects of white slave crusades merely index something deeper and realer.
Instead, Donovan contends, the activism around prostitution should be understood as constructing cultural categories and boundaries, as a process of "racial formation" which is the "product of large and small 'racial projects. To construct his case for the agency involved in responses to social change, Donovan emphasizes variation in the diagnoses and prescriptions offered by different reformers operating in different cities.
He begins, as would most [End Page ] conventional cultural histories, by reconstructing the major narratives of white slavery as represented in the most prominent publications and cultural artifacts. Yet Donovan's point is to understand white slavery as an opportunity for varied reformers to advance distinctive understandings of the problems of their day and of the normative categories of race as well as gender. For others, notably Jane Addams, women's participation in prostitution was a choice made under the constraints of low wages and economic exploitation.
For her fellow Chicagoan, attorney Clifford Roe, prostitution was instead a reflection of moral character; given "the right stuff," a woman would resist prostitution no matter how dire her economic circumstances. After making his reputation in Chicago, Roe was then summoned to New York City to assist a Rockefeller-supported investigation which highlighted the implication of prostitution in the world of "black and tan" establishments with their threats of miscegenation between whites and African-Americans.
