H.T. Kealing publishes his essay “The Characteristics of the Negro People” in The Negro Problem. In the book H.T. Kealing, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, and other Black thinkers of the period debate the merits of different types of education for African Americans, including classical education. Alongside the shared enterprise of African American advancement, the essays also disclose some of the common prejudices of the day, including race pseudoscience and patriarchal views.
