Explorations in Ethnic Studies
Within the United States the African American community has again reverted to the problem of ethnic identity and the question, "Who are we -- 'Blacks' or 'African Americans'?" is now being debated. It will be recalled that a similar debate was carried on in the 1960s, and the history of this identity question extends to the 1920s and beyond.
