Schocken Books, New York, 1973, First Edition, boldly SIGNED on the front paste down by the eminent African American educator, psychologist, and social activist Kenneth B. Clark (1914-2005). A tireless advocate for desegregation, Clark was perhaps best known for his research on the self-image of Black children; in his famous “doll study” he studied the responses of more than two hundred children who showed a preference for white dolls over brown dolls from as early as three years old. The results of his research played a vital role in the landmark Supreme Court Case, Brown v. Board of Education which outlawed segregated education in 1954.
This is a comprehensive selection of the important Harlem Renaissance writer and poet, Claude McKay, which includes some of his best known work - selections from his Selected Poems, Harlem, and A Long Way From Home - as well as previously unpublished fiction and letters; with an extensive introduction by Wayne Cooper, 10 b&w illustrations. In cream cloth, slight rubbing to spine titles, corners are gently bumped, ding to top edge of front cover, ffep appears to be missing, else very good+, tight, square, pages are clean and unmarked; in a very good dust jacket, unclipped, nicks and creasing to spine ends, rubbing to flap folds, light wear to extremities. A fitting association copy with the signature of an important civil rights figure.J
