8. Richard R. Wright, “The Negroes of Xenia, Ohio: A Social Study,’” Bulletin of the Department of Labor (September 1903): 1006-1044.
In-depth study of the social and economic status of African Americans in Xenia, Ohio, a community in the southwestern part of Ohio between Columbus and Cincinnati. Mr. Stone has noted the final paragraph. “As a result of this study the conclusion is reached that the condition of the Negroes of Xenia shows in many ways, though sometimes but feebly, a response to the better advantages afforded by this city as compared to the towns of Sandy Spring and Farmville. This conclusion leads to the inference that the future will see the Negroes better their condition as their environment becomes better.”
