Charlottesville, Va. The Michie Company, Printers, 1927.
Soft Cover. From the preface “whether by original intention or not, the Occasional Papers published by the Trustees of the John F. Slater Fund will be found to show quite fairly the series of degrees in the progress made in the education of the colored children of the South.” The Slater Fund focused on the education of newly emancipated colored populations in the South after the Civil War, as opposed to others such as the Peabody Fund which funded all-white public schools. The ‘Papers’ are on such subjects as Lynching, Education, Migration, A New Reconstruction, Interracial Cooperation, an Introductory Address, and Southern Educators Appeal for Enforcement of Law. The Slater Fund is one of the few well-funded, well-intentioned, organizations of the time which did good work supporting oppressed populations of the South. Stapled blue paper wrappers.
Very Good binding.
