    In the research for his book on the opportunities of the black population in Metropolitan France, Shelby T.

    When Franklin D. Roosevelt was sworn in as president, the South was unmistakably the most disadvantaged part of the nation.

Moreover, the region was prostrate from the effects of the Great Depression.... more...
