ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Blue Ridge YMCA conference center outside the town of Black Mountain, North Carolina, and its efforts to improve race relations in the U.S. South. The founding of the center by Willis Duke (W. D.) Weatherford in 1906 is discussed, as is its uniqueness as one of the only social institutions in the segregated South where the race question could be discussed openly, and where African Americans, such as scientist George Washington Carver, were sometimes even invited to speak.
