After hearing and reading a variety of reports and articles, some praising and some degrading oscar DePriest, this study is made in order that one may better understand the conditions existing during his struggles and with the intentions that with understanding his success may be better judged. The purpose of this study is to show by presenting the facts of the status of the negro and mainly the political activities through which oscar DePriest had to struggle in finally reaching his seat in congress. It is not primarily concerned with the general status of the negro nor with the history of the negro, but it is given to depict settings from which oscar DePriest arose and also to measure DePriest's contribution to the general progress of the negro and especially as it may continue and vary from other situations which other negro politicians might have had.
