Since the negro's installation on American soil back in the seventeenth century, it has been necessary for the negro to struggle and fight to secure and maintain those privileges and benefits which are indigenous to a democratic nation. The field of education has proved to be no exception to this never-ceasing struggle for rights. The negro has come a long way since the beginning of the twentieth century, but the road ahead is still a long one.
