The American Negro, Old World Background and New World Experience.


High school textbook of African American history arranged in topically discrete sections and with study questions and chapter reviews. “The story of American Negroes is an integral part of the American past and must be examined within the context of that past. This book therefore focuses on the decisions, for good or evil, that determined public policy regarding Americans of African descent.” (Preface).  Co-author Rayford Whittingham Logan (1897–1981) was a civil rights and Pan-Africanist activist, long-time Howard University academic and collaborator of W.E.B. Du Bois, and historian of the African diaspora.
