The psychology of the Negro
Text from introduction: Though the term "race psychology" has been in use, for some years, the amount of scientific evidence of the existence of racial differences in mentality is very small. In America, where so many races meet and contribute to the national life, there is a special need for accurate knowledge of any racial differences that may exist in mental capacity, in temperament, or in physical development. In the experimental study which is here reported, we have attempted to make some slight contribution to our knowledge of the physical development and mental capacity of negro children.
