Of special interest is Eugene Gordon's contribution "Negro Society". A brief note preceding his piece: "College graduates, $60,000 a year lawyers, porters and janitors are all a part of the fabric of Afro-American society. What are its aspirations? What are its society news notes like? Is its social capital Harlem or Washington or Chicago? A Negro writes with directness and honesty of his own people". This volume is full of great content.
