Appleton-Century Co., [1939]. xi, 354 pp. This was the first treatise to examine the legal status of the Negro as interpreted by United States courts in the specific civil rights areas of citizenship; education; property rights; labor; involuntary servitude; Jim Crow laws and regulations; segregation and failure to provide accommodations in charitable and penal institutions; domestic issues such as interracial marriage, illegitimate offspring, adoption; mob domination at trials of Negroes and resultant venue changes; race discrimination in jury selection as well as racial prejudice of jurors, prejudicial remarks, punishments and sentences; the voting franchise before 1865, during reconstruction and its aftermath; disfranchisement attempts to keep Negroes away from the polls from 1890-1920; and much more. The treatise is well-annotated with citations to relevant cases, and includes a bibliography and index.
