Letter from The Association for the Study of Negro Life and History to Benjamin Brawley, November 27, 1931

Signed C. G. Woodson, Director; regarding a recent conference on "The Encyclopedia of the Negro" and the report therefrom deriving, and deeming the Association's involvement therein inadvisable, as it is already at work on a similar venture "of ten volumes, the title of which will be 'The Encyclopedia Africana'"; and, as this area is thus already covered, suggesting that "you spend your time and energy in doing some of the other long neglected tasks which the present undesirable condition of the Negro requires." Most likely enclosed in correspondence between Benjamin Brawley and W. E. B. Du Bois.
