A Study of Delinquent and Neglected Negro Children Before the New York City Children's Court

New York: Joint Committee on Negro Child Study in New York City, Publisher, 1927. Wraps. Good. Item #019913

Printed wraps. 48 pp., plus a few fold out tables. A report on the findings of a 1925 study of African American children in New York City, who either appeared before the court, or were in some other way documented as "delinquent" or "neglected." The report provides statistics on numbers, as well as conclusions drawn from the study. Overall, it appears the committee found that there were very few resources available, institutional and otherwise, to African American children. GOOD condition. Ex-library with stamping and stickers present on the upper front cover and title page. General uneven toning, some soiling and minor staining to the covers. Paper on the spine chipped, torn and peeled at the head and tail. Minor toning to the text block.

Price: $75.00
