9 WALTER WHITE Cru dei f or Justice, by Roy Wil ins . . 105 Introduction HAS ANY MINORITY GROUP ever started out with greater handi caps and made more significant progress in a shorter time than the American Negro Every American young person should have the opportunity to know the thrilling story of the achievements of the Negro race. Such information, made available to, our schools and libraries, would be most effective in discrediting the outgrown theory of the inferiority of races other than our own white race. Only a smallnumber of our own list of distinguished Negro per sonalities could be included in this volume.

They are truly among Americas great. After listening spellbound to Marian Andersons Salzburg recital, the great Toscanini said What I have heard today is not heard once in a hundred years. When Dr. Carver appeared before a Washington committee several years ago, Dr. David Fair child, a United States agricultural expert said Dr. Carver is one of the most remarkable and extraordinary minds I have ever met. Dr. James W. Johnson was a poet, teacher, lawyer, musician, and statesman. Each one of the persons described in this volume achieved similar, if not equal, greatness.

When the Emancipation Proclamation was signed, less than seventy years ago, only 5 per cent of the Negroes were literate. Today 85 per cent of them can read and write. Already a hundred and sixteen Negroes have been elected to Phi Beta Kappa in white American colleges. The Negro spiritual is regarded as the most dis tinctive contribution to American music. In spite of this thrilling record of achievement in every vocation and profession, we are still hesitant to give Americas tenth man a square deal.

Recently, there have been mass murders and anti-Negro rioting in the city of Detroit Cellos Harrison was lynched in Mar ianna, Florida and ten thousand whites engaged in a riot against the Negro population of Beaumont, Texas. viii Introduction The Negro is seriously handicapped in regard to education, reli gion, recreation, employment, promotion, travel, housing, hospital izarion, security, and recognition. How can we consistently say that we are fighting for democracy and justice for all races and people abroad, and not grant thatsame privilege to the most important minority group in our own country The purpose of this little volume is to cultivate a better under standing between the white and Negro races, and to promote a finer appreciation of the Negro and his contribution to American life and civilization.

There is a very great need for such material in our schools and libraries. We send forth this book in the hope that it will bear a message of racial brotherhood. The editor wishes to express his sincere appreciation to all who have helped in the making of this volume...
