Title

Article "Students Hear Hancock"

Description

This article discusses how Professor Hancock, a "colored teacher of sociology at the Union College of Richmond," came into Dr. Harlan’s sociology class at the University of Richmond. Hancock’s talk was titled, "The Negro and His Community". Professor Hancock was among the most prominent and active black members of the Commission on Interracial Cooperation and he “loathed the oppression and discrimination endemic to segregation but reasoned that pragmatism demanded civility and required their cooperation with white elites in the management of white supremacy” (Smith, p. 14). He also was someone who “emphasized self-help, solidarity, and patience…” (Smith, p. 14).
