KIRKUS REVIEW

An anthology of writing about the Negro, representative of much of the best that has been said and thought and felt. In three parts, the first is devoted to ""Maritage"" and includes pieces about their culture (W. E. Du ), about slave trading and slavery and the Civil War ( Fanny , Henrietta Case histories from Brothers Under the Shin. The second part -- short stories -- includes some moving writing by Dorothy Parker, Kay Boyl, Langston Wright, Caldwell, and others. And lastly ""Today and Tomorrow"" presents the problem in questions of army and employment discrimination, education, segregation, the South and the color line, the Detroit riots, and is authored by such people as Smith, collection, both impressive and readable -- an eloquent restatement of an issue still to be ... One could wish for a title that gave it more dignity. In the South the term ""white folks"" is in the North it's a bit on the corny side.
