Negroes and Mental Health Acceptance of Mental Health Services by Middle Class Negroes in Hollis and St. Albans, New York, 1963
Background of the Study. January 1, 1863, President Lincoln issued an Emancipation Proclamation and when the Thirteenth Amendment was passed, slavery ended in America. Negroes now were free and entitled to liberty and full citizenship rights. Within a short period of time, many Negroes learned that this signing of the Proclamation did not give them first class citizenship, and they were to be denied rights and dignity. One hundred years later, their heirs are still fighting for social, political and economic freedom. In every state, city and town of this great country, the Negroes are shouting "Freedom NOW! They are no longer willing to tolerate segregation and the chains of discrimination.
