When Negro Life in the South was sent out to the college men of the country, it was with the greatest misgivings. I am persuaded that not the merit of the book but the overmastering importance of the subject has called forth a response far beyond expectation. Already, more than ten thousand college men in the South have used this little volume in the study groups of the college Young Mens Christian Associations. Many of these groups have asked for a further study of this subject, and it is in response to this call that the present volume is sent forth.I am greatly indebted to the large number of students and professors, in white and colored schools alike, who have helped in gathering the material for this undertaking. Also, I must express my appreciation to the farm demonstrators in the South, superintendents of education and hosts of others who have so fully and cordially responded to my requests for facts.As in the former volume, I have attempted to be fair to all concerned. The supreme need of the hour is that men shall face facts rather than spin theories. No sane or fair-minded man can excuse his own ignorance of so important a subject. My effort, therefore, has been to state conditions as they are, even though such statements at times have seemed harsh.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
