The problem of collecting data for this study has been difficult. Negroes in rural areas live and die without leaving any records of any kind about county records, which in most cases, are kept in such condition that not very much information could be obtained from them. A diary was found that gave some insight into Negro life of Shelby county. Personal interviews with people who have lived in the county proved interviews with people who have lived in the county proved very valuable in understanding the condition under which Negro of the county has had to live. National and state government agencies gave valuable information in the form of statistical data, that could be used in the development of this study.
