(B&W frontispiece) A novel, intended to act as a brief for racial tolerance and understanding. The author evokes "Uncle Tom's Cabin" in his preface, and pays tribute to Booker T. Washington and other "prominent coloured men," while declaring that his book "is sent out with the desire of making men and women better acquainted, not with the typical negro of minstrel shows, or with the negro as caricatured in comic newspapers, but with the refined and cultured negro gentleman."
