Sorry Roger, but that's not correct.

First clue. Sandburg was generally praised for this.

Second clue:

Newspapers 50 years later were still talking about it.

Based on that second clue, I'd have to guess Sandburg's 1919 book on the Chicago race riot of that year based on his newspaper articles.

RE: A Sandburg Stumper
Sorry Anita, but Steve got it. Sandburg covered the 1919 race riot in Chicago for the Chicago Daily News, and while some of his writing might seem somewhat obtuse to our 21st century ears, it was one of the few times that African-Americas in Chicago were treated as human beings in the white Chicago press.

Great job Steve.
