dc.description.abstractLanguage plays an enormous role in establishing and furthering self-image. Language reflects environment, and knowledge, as well as feelings and emotions. The attempt here has been to describe and examine the Negro community in terms of language and all of its factors. We have established three things: 1. that the Negro’s self-image is very low, 2. that he has a language which is apart from the English of the white community, and 3. that this language reflects his self-image and can be used as a tool to bettering this self-image. Observations have shown that language can be used successfully as this tool.en_US
