Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Question
By Harriet Monroe
 
From “Carolina Wood-cuts”

THEY were sauntering down the red road
As I passed them—
The round-lipped black woman and her child.
And the child was saying:
“Why’s white folks better’n us, Mammy?        5
What’s white folks, anyhow?”
