When this memoir first appeared in 1948, its author, Dr. Joseph Holley, was often cited for inappropriate accommodation to white supremacy policies. In actuality, as the editors point out in their new edition with a new introduction and foreword, this book is a minor classic serving as a record of the black conservative mind at that time. Dr. Holley's association and acquaintance with Frederick Douglass, W.E.B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington inspired and propelled him toward the foundation of an African-American college now called Albany State College in Georgia. This book synthesizes the philosophical and historical debate surrounding Washington's accommodationist argument versus DuBois' confrontational view, reaching conclusions of critical importance today to black/white relationships. First published in 1948 by the William Federal Press.
