The Color Line, Legacy for the Twenty-First Century. [inscribed and signed by the author]
The Color Line had its origin in three lectures on race and its persistent social problems delivered in 1992 by Professor John Hope Franklin (1915–2009) at the University of Missouri–Columbia. The book’s title evokes the words of another academic, W.E.B. Du Bois in 1903: “The problem of the twentieth century will be the problem of the color line—the relation of the darker to the lighter races of men.” This copy inscribed to Black bibliophile and educator, Brooks Morris, by the author, an esteemed historian and Duke University professor.
