Charles Spurgeon Johnson was president of Fisk University and the person to whom a generation of scholars turned when they wanted to know about black America. Johnson's personal battle of racial discrimination lead him to become a sociologist in African American studies so that he may give factual insight regarding the Black diaspora. He systematically documented the negative economic and social effects of segregation on African Americans and made Fisk a center for studies on race relations in the South. Patterns of Negro Segregation is a pathbreaking systematic survey of the shape and consequences of racial segregation in several parts of the South, Midwest, and North-east. Unclipped DJ in archival cover, toning, small chips, and a large chip to cover. Overall very good condition.
