Benjamin Griffith Brawley€(1882-1939) was a prominent African American€author and educator. Several of his books were considered standard college texts, including€The Negro in Literature and Art in the United States€and€New Survey of English Literature.€ He earned two B.A. degrees from Atlanta Baptist College (now Morehouse College) and the University of Chicago. He€received his Masters degree from Harvard University.€Brawley taught in the English departments at Atlanta Baptist College, €Howard University, and Shaw University.€He also wrote€A Short History of the American Negro, €A Short History of the English Drama, €and€A Social History of the American Negro. Written in the last year of World War I and addressed to "Citizens and Patriots" of the United States, Brawley requests consideration of the fact that "To-day the Negro daily suffers such indignities as make the very words Liberty and Democracy a travesty." His book describes these indignities and the Negroes' responses to them.€ Brawley believed that the time was right for American€"soul-searching" on these issues because of Negroes' faithful and willing participation in the war, "whether as officers or stevedores ... [bearing] their share of the brunt of battle," despite misgivings. "They could not readily forget that under our country's flag, crimes unspeakable had been committed against them. They could not help remembering that even as they went forth to fight, their sisters and their wives did not have the full protection of the law. They still had faith, however, in the great heart of the American people ..." Brawley directly addresses the subject of lynching on page 41
