New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1924. First Edition. Near Fine binding. Signed. The first book by this important leader of the American civil rights movement. As a young man, he joined, at the behest of James Weldon Johnson, the national staff of the NAACP in 1909, in the association's early days. He was to become its Executive Secretary, and during his near 25 year tenure, it was he who really constructed the fight against segregation in public places. Of mixed race, his name is almost ironic -- as he could pass as a white man, and as such worked as an "undercover agent" for the NAACP investigating lynchings in the South.~White's first book, and one of the early products of the Harlem Renaissance, with a warm and personal inscription. Near Fine binding.
