Morals and manners among Negro Americans by W. E. B Du Bois( Book )

8 editions published between 1914 and 2010 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published along with the proceedings of the 18th Annual Conference for the "Study of the Negro Problems" in 1914, this ground-breaking historical report, compiled by sociologist and civil rights leader, W.E.B. Du Bois and A.G. Dill, is a scientific study of African American morals. What's truly fascinating about this particular study is that long before such research was the standard, Dubois, who started out his long and varied career as a sociologist, was pioneering techniques in empirical studies. The result is a fascinating collection of sociological writings on African Americans. For this study, Du Bois and co-editor, A.G. Dill mailed surveys to four thousand individuals "residing in all parts of the country and engaged in all walks of life." The result was that "ten percent" of those questioned made replies to the questionnaire, from thirty different states. Du Bois's survey addressed such topics as good manners, sound morals, habits of cleanliness, personal integrity, home life, rearing children, the care of the elderly, church ministries, activities for young people, and an evaluation of recent progress in the black community. This edition of the report presents readers with an opportunity to evaluate Du Bois's perception of the state of the conditions for African Americans at the turn of the century
