The Negro and the Post-War World, A Primer.


Immediate post-World War II survey of the plight Blacks in Africa, the West Indies, Latin America, and the United States by Howard University professor, author, and Pan-Africanist, Rayford Whittingham Logan (1897–1982). Published by the African American publishing firm, The Minorities Publishers.

Prof. Logan decries the legacy of over 400 years of slavery and the resulting treatment of Blacks as being inferior. “The raising of the status of the Negro will make it more difficult to argue that the Negro is by nature inferior and the growing body of literature portraying the achievements of Negroes will make it more difficult to carry on this propaganda based on ignorance.” (p10)
