The Negro people are an integral part of the American citizenry. Numbering 11,600,000 they represent 9 per cent of the total population of the United States. In the World War, 368,000 answered the call to the flag and about 200,000 served in the American Expeditionary Force in France. Improvement of the economic welfare of the members of this race, protection of their health and physical well-being, their moral, intellectual, and aesthetic uplift are questions immediately affecting the other 91 per cent of the country's population. The attainment of these objectives can only be accomplished through higher education, through its upbuilding, expansion, and development. This bulletin presents a critical study of Negro higher education as it exists at present in the following states: (1) Alabama; (2) Arkansas; (3) Delaware and Maryland; (4) District of Columbia; (5) Florida; (6) Georgia; (7) Kentucky; (8) Louisiana; (9) Mississippi and Oklahoma; (10) Missouri; (11) North Carolina; (12) Ohio and West Virginia; (13) Pennsylvania; (14) South Carolina; (15) Tennessee; (16) Texas; and (17) Virginia. The facts thus brought out, not abstract theories, form the basis of recommendation for the future. An appendix presents information on enrollment, property, and income of Negro colleges. An index is included. (Individual chapters contain tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
