Joel Augustus Roger’s seminal work, this novel first published in 1917 is a polemic against the ignorance that fuels racism. The central plot revolves around a debate between a Pullman porter and a white racist Southern politician.

“A genuine treasure. I still insist that From ‘Superman’ to Man is the greatest book ever written in English on the Negro by a Negro and I am glad to know that increasing thousands of black and white readers re-echo the high opinion of it which I had expressed some years ago.”

In Nature Knows No Color-Line, originally published in 1952, historian Joel Augustus Rogers examines the origins of racial hierarchy and the color problem. Rogers was a humanist who believed that there were no scientifically evident racial divisions—all humans belong to one “race.” He believed that color prejudice generally evolved from issues of domination and power between two physiologically different groups. According to Rogers, color prejudice was then used a rationale for domination, subjugation and warfare. Societies developed myths and prejudices in order to pursue their own interests at the expense of other groups. This book argues that many instances of the contributions of black people had been left out of the history books, and gives many examples.

This book is dedicated to a better understanding among all the varieties of the human race. The merest common sense calls for such an understanding. Racial doctrines as they exist today negate intelligence. Indeed they furnish a paradox that exceeds any of the extravagences of Gilbert and sullivan. For instance, we had the great dictators, Hitler & Mussolini, openly saying that "race" is a fraud but cynically using it to unite their gullible followers. At the same time the two great democratic nations, Britan & America, while condeming Fascist and Nazi doctrines, and proclaiming equal justice for all, were using "race" as a fetish to keep their own citizens and sujects divided. White people were set against black peoples by the bogey of miscegenation. The purpopse of this book therore, is to see what and what have gone into the make up of this fearsome "bogey man". We shall see that mankind began as a single family; that the family circle widened and widened until it broke into segments, and with that come the illusion that the segments were no longer parts of the circle. Racial understanding , racial sympathy, is the key to permanent WORLD PEACE.

Originally published in 1959 and revised and expanded in 1989, this book asserts that Africans had contributed more to the world than was previously acknowledged. Historian Joel Augustus Rogers devoted a significant amount of his professional life to unearthing facts about people of African ancestry. He intended these findings to be a refutation of contemporary racist beliefs about the inferiority of blacks. Rogers asserted that the color of skin did not determine intellectual genius, and he publicized the great black civilizations that had flourished in Africa during antiquity. According to Rogers, many ancient African civilizations had been primal molders of Western civilization and culture.
