Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

2014 Reprint of 1924 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Rogers' work was concerned with the Great Black Man theory of history. This theory presented history, specifically black history, as a mural of achievements by prominent black people. Rogers devoted a significant amount of his professional life to unearthing facts about people of African ancestry. He intended these findings to be a refutation of contemporary racist beliefs about the inferiority of blacks. Books such as 100 Amazing Facts about the Negro, Sex and Race, and World's Great Men of Color, all described remarkable black people throughout the ages and cited significant achievements of black people. Rogers' first book, From Superman to Man, self-published in 1917, attacked notions of African inferiority. It is a polemic against the ignorance that fuels racism. The central plot revolves around a debate between a Pullman porter and a white racist Southern politician. Rogers used this debate to air many of his personal philosophies and to debunk stereotypes about black people and white racial superiority. The porter's arguments and theories are pulled from a plethora of sources, classical and contemporary, and run the gamut from history and anthropology to biology. Many of the Read More chevron_right
