On September 29, 1971, Oliver C. Cox received a letter from the American Sociological Association informing him that he was the first person to be selected for the “Dubois-Johnson-Frazier Award.” We are pleased to share this letter which was discovered and given to Juliet Awon Uibopuu on May 3, 2006.  

In the February 12, 2007 issue of Newsweek Magazine, Periscope Section, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson wrote:”An Important Book that has been overlooked: ‘Caste, Class, and Race’ by Oliver Cromwell Cox. The battle between races and classes has never been dealt with as powerfully or more clearly.”

The American Sociology Association annually presents The Oliver C. Cox award for the best sociology book.

…Caste, Class and Race which was first published by the Doubleday Book Company in 1948. For this book, which sold out in six months, Cox received the George Washington Carver Award from Doubleday Company.
