Excerpt from Rural Land Ownership Among the Negroes of Virginia: With Special Reference to Albemarle County

The present essay, which for simplicity has been divided into seven chapters, is the result of the writer's investigations during his incumbency of the Phelps-Stokes Fellowship at the University of Virginia during the session of 1914-15. While the subject is too great to be treated adequately in so limited a time it is hoped that the following pages may at least suggest the differences in economic condition between urban and rural negroes and eventually, perhaps, lead to an exhaustive study of the subject. Like all social questions the negro problem must be analyzed under the special conditions of time and place before there can be any intelligent basis for action, and it was with the purpose of increasing the present inadequate fund of such knowledge that the present study was undertaken.

My thanks for helpful advice on the ways and means of undertaking the study are especially due to Dr. Thos. W. Page, of the University of Virginia; Professor W. M. Hunley, of the Virginia Military Institute; Dr. J. H. Dillard, Director of the Jeannes Fund, Charlottesville, Va.; and Mr. D. Hiden Ramsey, of Asheville, N. C.; and to Dr. Chas. W. Kent, of the University of Virginia, who read the manuscript. Messrs. N. T. McMannaway, of Charlottesville; P. T. Atkinson, of Hampden-Sidney; B. E. Copenhaver, of Marion; and R. A. Folkes, of Gloucester gave valuable information on school conditions which could not have been obtained from any other source and to that degree increase whatever value the present study may have.
