Issues Facing African Americans: 1902

By February 5, 2013

Follow me on:

More than 100 years ago, Dr. Daniel Wallace Culp published a book of articles on various issues facing African Americans of the day, with 100 writers represented. Some of the articles were by women, including Mary Church Terrell, Mary Talbert, and Rosetta Douglass Sprague (a daughter of Frederick Douglass). Topics are ones that still are of interest today: What's the responsibility of the educated to their community? Are the youth better or worse than the younger generation? Should African Americans have African American teachers? What are the accomplishments of African Americans? Read some century-old perspectives on long-standing issues -- with a bonus being biographical sketches of these interesting, and often-forgotten women: African American Women on Race - 1902
