Is Race Prejudice Innate Or Acquired?

[Washington, DC: S.i., n.d. but ca.1919]. Pamphlet in which Miller discusses whether race prejudice is "a natural antipathy, parallel with other instincts...or is it merely a stimulated animosity, the outgrowth of circumstances and conditions..." Not dated, but references a thousand Negro soldiers marrying French wives during the World War. Though less widely-known today than his more famous contemporaries Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois, Miller was arguably the most influential Black intellectual of his era, a prolific, articulate, and widely-published advocate for Negro education and civil rights, once called by Carter Woodson "undoubtedly the greatest pamphleteer of the Negro race." OCLC locates 3 holdings (Emory, Yale, BL). Octavo (23.5cm); beige wrappers printed in black, stapled; 8,[4]pp. Touch of oxidation to staples, faint dust-soil and a hint of foxing to wrappers, with a faint, pinkish hue to upper half of rear wrapper; contents clean; Very Good+.
