Local Color is writing that exploits the speech, dress, mannerisms, habits of thought, and topography peculiar to a certain region.
Locale Color Writing exists primarily for the portrayal of the people and life of a geographical setting.
The Local Color Movement begins in 1880 and comes out of the Realist Movement. This style of writing is marked by the attempt at accurate dialect, a tendency toward the use of eccentrics as characters, and the use of sentimentalized pathos or whimsical humor in plotting.
Local Color Writing lacks the basic seriousness of true Realism. It emphasizes verisimilitude of detail without being concerned with the larger ethical questions that tend to define a work as Realist Literature.
