Abstract

The "Negro Problem" in American history is largely a result of a "white problem." The fixing of American blacks into a position of second-class citizenship in the three decades following the Civil War was a natural product of white American attitudes and actions. This study is an effort to illuminate the racial attitudes of a white intellectual minority through an examination of the positions taken by the voice of this group, the New York Nation.
