Within a year of Cedric Dover's American Negro Art being published, Dover contributed a feature with the same name to The American Review, Spring 1961, Volume 1, Number 3. "A Quarterly of American Affairs", The American Review was published under the Auspices of The European Center of American Studies of The Johns Hopkins Bologna Center. The special feature was included in an issue dedicated to Segregation Desegregation. As with American Negro Art, Dover was fulsome indeed, in his praise of Charles White, in this 13 page essay on the history and cultural significance of African American art. The essay was followed by 5 pages of reproductions of artists' work, the first page of which included Charles White's There Were No Crops This Year, Courtesy Barnett Aden Gallery, Washington, D.C. [The work dated from 1940, though the date was not given in the image credit]
In his references to Charles White, Dover reprised a sentiment he had expressed in American Negro Art: "Further discussion of contemporary Negro artists is beyond the limits of an article, but I know those I should want to represent in a collection covering the last three decades of American Negro art. I would certainly have Pippin and Lawrence at their best, yet I would sacrifice them, if I had to, in favor of almost anything I could get by Charles White, a painter of tremendous dramatic power who has raised conte crayon to the level of oils."
