Nineteenth-Century Racism: The Anthropologist Who First Defined the Negro's Place in Nature.
Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, n32 p124-25 Sum 2001
Presents excerpts from an 1863 address by British anthropologist James Hunt to the Anthropological Society of London. Hunt's paper, "The Negro's Place in Nature," has been called the most important document in an era that laid the foundation for scientific racism. In it, Hunt suggested that physical characteristics of the Negro race were related to their inferior intelligence. (SM)
