MY HERO recommends this book to adult readers.
Mays (1894-1984), a dean at Howard University, president of Morehouse College, and president of the Atlanta School Board, explains, especially to younger Americans of any race, what Negro-white relations were like in the South and the US in general during the decades before 1954, and recounts what he characterizes as the snake-like progress of those relations. The 1971 edition was published by Scribner. Orville Vernon Burton has revised his Foreword for the 1987 edition. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
