(p.79) Conclusion
Eugene Kinckle Jones

Felix L. Armfield

University of Illinois Press

This concluding chapter summarizes the notable events and accomplishments of Eugene Kinckle Jones's life and work, contextualizing them furthermore within a racially charged climate. Jones grew up in a comfortably middle-class family, and was, along with many of his peers, charged with a peculiar responsibility for racial uplift as part of the Talented Tenth. The chapter also considers how Jones and his peers belonged to the group of African Americans whose contributions, had it not been for their race, would have been properly acknowledged long before now. Finally, the chapter reiterates the aims of this volume's overall study in situating Jones as a significant part of black American history long before the civil rights era.
