I am certain will help the understanding in finding an answer to the inter-racial problems - The Brotherhood of Man. Lovingly, Aunt Adeline, Oct. 12 - 1952.” Some mottling to a few preliminary pages otherwise a very good plus tight copy in the printed dust jacket which has a few tiny chips and small small tears. Rare in jacket. “The Negro has suddenly discovered the power and importance of his own Press. It is a rapidly expanding influence, consisting even now of two dailies, a dozen magazines, and over three hundred weeklies. In it may be found the voice of the Negro, and his heart and mind. It has seemed to Professor Kerlin that in the interest of national unity and harmony it is essential that white Americans should know what Afro-Americans think and feel on matters of national importance, as well as what are their grievances, their aspirations, and their demands. In this compilation, made with sympathy and knowledge from the colored Press of America for four consecutive months, we have a true cross-section of the Negro mind, which will be admitted of primary importance in the vital and work of getting to know the Negro and of giving him justice and the rights of a citizen.” Frontispiece photograph of a conference Negro editors in Washington during World War I.
