A sociological study, which analyzes the Negro from the point of view of group identification in its two manifestations, race protest and race pride. These patterns are traced from the days of slavery on to the gradual phases of Negro betterment, from the time when Booker T. Washington was the single spokesman of his race to the formation of the NAACP, the Urban League, etc. The new economic opportunities ushered in by the World War, the migrations, the protest movements, the various divisive factors within the race- the self-hatred as well as the hatred of the whites, and the position of the Negro today and the unanimity of what he wants. A well-sourced, well-coordinated probe, with an extensive bibliography. Too bad it comes into a saturated-therefore-slow market.
