Tliis thesis is a study on the nature of philantluopy and its reflection on improving
relations between races in 1920s Chicago. Julius Roscnwald played a pivotal role in
helping create links between white philantlu'opists and a black elite. Chicago’s African

improve persisting perceptions of blacks by whites. This study aims to bring out the
attitudes ol leading blacks and whites in working together to improve race relations.
