Later Pocahontas would be adopted with an interest in her racial "otherness," but this time with a social, rather than commercial, agenda. The Hampton Institute, one of the first African American colleges in America, published a long poem in 1910 entitled "Pocahontas", dedicated "To the Indian Girls of Hampton Institute, on the 300th Anniversary of the Founding of Jamestown, Virginia," indicating the incorporation of Native Americans at that traditionally black college. Interestingly, the speaker of the poem is Pocahontas herself. This is the first example of an entire poem's voice being given over to Pocahontas.
Throughout, she sings of her difficulty in accepting the white man's ways, yet she perseveres in her compassionate manner. The work ends with the benediction, "Let the bond of the Nations be Love!" A footnote to this last line then reminds readers on this anniversary of the de facto founding of our nation that Pocahontas was a peace-making bridge between the races. This poem makes Pocahontas a spokesperson for reconciliation between black and white, male and female.
