Historian Rayford Logan was part of a circle of intellectuals at Howard University in the 1930s-1950s that included E. Franklin Frazier, Charles Drew, Sterling Brown, and Alain Locke. In 1944, Logan gathered together essays by fifteen prominent black intellectuals -- Langston Hughes, Sterling Brown, Mary McLeod Bethune, A. Philip Randolph, W. E. B. Du Bois and Roy Wilkins among them. The outspoken views expressed in the essays that make up What the Negro Wants helped to set the agenda for the Civil Rights Movement.
