The Negro American
Published as a double issue of the Academy’s journal, Dædalus, this study is a comprehensive survey of the problems and the status of African-Americans in American society, a topic of great urgency at the time. The resulting volume has been considered seminal in explaining the complexities and implications of racial problems in the United States in the 1960s.
