The center of Negro population, 1920, as determined by the Bureau of the Census, is located in the extreme northwestern corner of Georgia, in Dade County, about one and three-fourth miles northeast of Rising Fawn town; for the first time in the history of the country this center has moved northeast, being approximately 9.4 miles farther east and 19.4 miles farther north in 1920 than it was in 1910. Its former movements have all been in a southwesterly direction. cf. pp. 389-390.
THE NEGRO YEAR BOOK for 1921-1922 is the sixth annual edition, no edition for 1919-1920 being published. The historical material in previous editions has been brought down to date and re-arranged as far as the addition of new material and changes in the significance of the topics relating to the Negro seemed to demand. There is a mass of material in the review of the events relating to the Negro, 19191921, interpreting the attitude of the Negro. This data is compiled from every available source and has been supplemented by the researches of the editor, especially with reference to Lynchings, Riots, Migration, the Negro in Politics, Race-relations and Inter-racial Co-operation.
The Negro Year Book is the standard book of reference on all matters relating to the Negro and is the most extensively used compendium of information on this subject. It circulates widely in every part of the United States and to a considerable extent in Canada, the West Indies, Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
The present edition contains new information about the attitude of the African, what he wants in both West and South Africa, and contains a map showing the territorial changes and distribution according to existing mandates. In the section on the Negro Population in the United States the reader will find new material on Migration on Black Counties, the black and mulatto elements in the population, changes in land-tenure, and comparative statistics of the Negro and white population in cities of 2,000 or more inhabitants
This edition of the Negro Year Book has the most extensive and up-to-date bibliography which has yet been put out on the Negro in the United States. In addition to the topically arranged bibliographies at the end of the book, the reader will find throughout the volume, in connection with special topics, further references to the subjects discussed. This is especially helpful to the student who wishes to pursue further the investigation of any particular topic.
The price of the Negro Year Book, postpaid, is, paper cover, 50c; board cover, $1.00. Special rates to agents.
