Impressions of the South

Charles Dudley Warner


Essay, Travelogue


Race, Industry, Education, Progress

    Reflects on the 'magnitude of the negro problem' in the Southern states of America, suggesting that the 'practical settlement of it' is the 'most difficult task now anywhere visible in human progress' (551). Advises that the 'South must have a highly diversified industry' and should provide 'industrial as well as ordinary schools for the colored people', because 'with this education and with diversified industry, the social question will settle itself, as it does the world over'. Also states that it is 'my impression that the negroes are no more desirous to mingle socially with the whites than the whites are with the negroes'. (550)
