Osthaus, Carl R.

The period of this study, 1906 through 1912, portrays in a microcosm the events which were to occur in Negro history during the New Deal years. These six years show the continual problem of Negro leadership; the struggle between those who would progress slowly and gradually, caring only for the future, and those who would strike out immediately for their inalienable rights. The story of this group of men, the radicals, the militants, the men ahead of their time, was one of predictable failure, yet without these men the Negro would still be a slave.
