"We, too, America, Offer Our Gifts" (1942)
In this article published in the Los Angeles School Journal on February 9, 1942, Blount expresses the innumerable contributions that African Americans have made to American society. She authored this article as a member of the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Union League, thereby testifying in her written and organizational work a commitment to changing the social and economic situation of African Americans. Blount writes that, in spite of intolerance and exploitation, the people of her race have transcended their oppression through their intellectual and artistic "gifts" to American society: "We can do whatever others can do. We stand ready to serve!" She lauds individuals by name, including other Rosenwald fellows such as Marian Anderson, Augusta Savage, and Richard Barthé.
