Short Biographical Sketches of Eminent Negro Men and Women in Europe and the United States, with Brief Extracts from their Writings and Public Utterances

Yonkers: Gazette Press, 1910.

First edition. 103 pp. Bound in publisher's crimson cloth with gilt lettering. Very Good, cloth worn and a little frayed at extremities with exposed tips. Distinguished African American sociologist Adelaide Hill's copy with her signature (under her maiden name) on the front free endpaper.

A rare, noteworthy work by the African American journalist, historian, and civil rights activist John Edward Bruce. Bruce's uncompromising radicalism set him apart from his contemporaries; he advocated armed self defense (rather than pacifism) and a prototypical Pan-Africanist version of Black Power. Late in life he became a supporter of Marcus Garvey and a mentor to Hubert Harrison. Item #140942243
