African-American Intellectuals Confront the 'Silent South': The 'What the Negro Wants' Controversy

Record #:
A look at the history of and controversy surrounding the 1944 publication of \"What the Negro Wants\" by the University of North Carolina Press as an example of racial paternalism and a startling instance of southern liberal hypocrisy in the prehistory of the civil rights movement. The publication was a collection of essays written by fourteen African American leaders calling for an end to segregation and dispensing with the idea of reforming the old system of race relations in favor of establishing a new one.
