THIS book first appeared in January of 1964, at a time when people who now prefer to be called blacks or African-Americans preferred to be called Negroes and when college students of any race were commonly referred to as boys or girls. The text has not been altered for this edition, which means that the language of that era remains intact. It also means that the lives of Charlayne Hunter and Hamilton Holmes are frozen in 1964. Charlayne Hunter-Gault now lives in New York, where she is national correspondent for the MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour on PBS. Hamilton Holmes, an orthopedic surgeon, is the medical director of Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta and associate dean of the Emory University School of Medicine.
