Owen, Chandler
Negroes and the War
[Washington DC]: United States Department of War Information, [1942]. Paperback. Very good. 13.5 by 10 inches. [68]pp. Inevitable tanning to newsprint, some pulling at the staples, two internal tape repaired closed tears to front, one to rear, some light nicking to the edges, else a very good example of this fragile wartime production; uncommon, especially in nice condition. Heavily illustrated appeal to African Americans who at the time may have been suspicious of what any defeat of the axis would men for their lives going forward. "This book has been prepared to celebrate the achievements of Negro Americans in many fields and to recognize their important contributions in all fields, to the fighting of the war. By word and pictures it tells: What Negroes are doing in agriculture, industry, and the armed forces. What Negroes have to lose if the Axis wins. What Negroes have to gain by an American victory." -introduction.
