Title

Article, "Dr. Mead Speaks on South America"

Description

This article discusses Richmond College Professor, Dr. Mead's speech at the Westhampton Assembly on April 16, 1934. Talking on his time in South America, he discusses the derivation of the word "carioca," explaining that its origin is in the Portuguese word for "white." His speech then goes on to provide emphasis on the fact that there has been much intermarriage between the black and white races there, and a noticeable lack of prejudice.
