The Ghetto of the Negro Novel: A Theme with Variations.
This lecture discusses what the ghetto of the Negro novel may have been over the last 70 years. It is stated that as time has passed, the Negro novel has never varied from its basic composition, but it has elaborated upon that basic composition in varied ways. It has, it is believed, afforded us a picture of the Negro mind which reflects both a permanent cast of Negro thought and the sensitivity of that cast of changes in the Negro's immediate environment.
