FUTURE OF THE NEGRO
Address delivered on Emancipation Day
by Prof L Wylie Principal of the
Fessenden Industrial School at Mar
tin Fla
Mr President Ladies and Gen
tlemen This day is commemo
rative of the freedom which came
to the negro through a fateful
evolution and which was deeded
to him by the willing pen and im
mortal words of that greatest
American Abraham Lincoln in
his emancipation proclamaticn of
1863 It is suggestive of much
to hegroes but more suggestive
to the white men of the great re
public of the new world It
causes him to see again that uni
versal freedom is the shibboleth
of human happiness and a safe
bedrock upon which may rest a
democratic government And he
rejoices today that slavery is not
tolerated in the United States
The negro should rejoice be
cause there was a declaration of
independence a constitution and
an emancipation proclamation
and honor both Washington and
Lincoln for without all these this
day would not have been possi
ble
Then let its memories cause re
joicings anew to well up in every
soul that is a friend to freedom
and believes in the onward and
upward march of the human
family
History teaches some wonder
ful things about the advance
ment of the races The Egyp
tians found the Greeks wild and
unclad living in trees subsisting
on roots yet trom such an ances
try sprang a Pericles unrivaled
for his statesmanship a Herodo
tus famed for the grasp with
which he handled historical
facts a Homer the sweetness of
whose songs has been the charm
of every age since a Demos
thenes whose peerless oratory
has had its influence upon all civ
ilized communities
The Britons ancestors of the
British were considered worth
less by Julius Caesar They
drank blood from human skulls
and were cannib ilistic in their ten
dencies yet 1 he descendants of
this people have founded an em
pire upon which the sun does not
set They move world upon
world of thought and have in
herited and produced the richest i I
fruits of the arts and sciences in
spite of great Julius Caesars as
sertion that they were not fit to
liveThe
The Scotch were once despised
and made fun of by the English
who asserted that you could only
make something of the Scotch
man if caught when he was
young Now Englishmen are
proud to have the steady yeo
manry of Scotland as a part of
their great empire
The strange changes in the
American black mans condition
are even more wonderful In a
condition like the first Greeks he
was brought to the United States
and put through the terrible and
trying ordeal of human bondage
I for 250 years He went into
bondage without a knowledge of
any art or conception of civiliza
tion he caIne out speaking the
language of the proud white
man He became the farmer
mechanic and general workman
I
of the South He gained some
conceptions of liberty duty
morality and religion though de
nied them for a great while
When the time came for the
bloody drama of the civil war to
be played and all was misunder
stood by man God stood behind
the scenes and thundered the de
cree that slavery must end and
gradually Ms plans have unfolded
in such a nrinner that there
should not be a pessimist in the
whole negro race
Slavery destroyed was his Red
sea crossed and he found him
self in the promised land The
negros patience is worthy of no
tice by tan American people He
was a faithful servant and guard
ed the homes of his masters with
as much fidelity as if he had been
a brother Let it be plainly un
derstood that he is just as faith
II Pride Goeth
Before a Fall
Some proud people think
they have strong constitu
tions and ridicule the idea
of disease Such people
neglect their health let the
blood run down and their
stomach kidneys and liver
become deranged Dont
be foolish about your health Use Hoods
Sarsaparflla and you vjlll prevent the fall
and save your pride
Bladder Troubles Hoods Sar
saparQla has done me so much good for
my stomach and bladder troubles that I
want to recommend H heartih to others
lam in better health than I have been for
the past 2O years Rev E 1 cMonroe

ful in freedom as he was in bond
age that he expects to stay in
the United States and that he is
loyal to the flag and American
institutions He wont move till
God tells him if he tried to go
he might go to the wrong place
He certainly can find no better
country to live in
TilE FIRST NEED
The first need then will be to
let it be well understood that the
negro expects to star right here
in the United States
We are here and here to stay
God alone can move us away
RACE PRIDE
Again there is need of race
pride It is best defined as being
that feeling in a negro which will
make him act in such a manner I
t as to reflect credit upon the ne
gro Not only should he study
the conditions and needs of the
race but should encourage negro
enterprises and industries in
his house he should have por
traits of Douglass LOverture
Bruce Langston our bishops
and educators our lawyers and
doctors and other successful
men He should read negro
newspapers books by negro au
thors and have copies of famous
paintings which have been made
by Tanner and others so that
the youth may know what ne I
groes have and are accomplish
ing
ingLet
Let it be known by the negro
youth that the senate chamber of
the United States has echoed
with the voice of negro senators
that the house of representatives
has held more than a score of ne
gro congressmen that there are
thousands of successful negroes
in the United States Teach
them these things and tell them
that patience and ability will one
day see such again Tell the
young people that the old slaves
with their poor chances have
amassed property to the amount
of three hundred million dollars
that activity is the glory and
idleness the bane of existence
Not only must the young negroes
be proud of what older negroes
have done but they must accom
plish something themselves
SELF RELIANCE
As a race the negro needs more
self reliance He must not de
pend upon political changes to
make him rich and happy but he
must steadily work even in the

I NEEDS FRIENDS
With such peculiar conditions
as we have we need friends It
is a poor policy that would dic
tate that we must make enemies
of the men at our elbow because
of institutions and conditions that
they did not inaugurate Instead
let us cultivate the friendship of
our fellow men I do not mean
as puppets but as men and true
men will welcome us as friends
upon such a basis The Bible
says A man who would have
friends must show himself friend
ly and we may adda man
must make friends for himself
Friends of the negro in the last
Florida legislature defeated the
Jim Crow car law They in
Georgia defeated the Hard wick
bill intended to discriminate i
against and disfranchise the ne
groes of Georgia Friends of the
negro will yet remove every dis
criminating law from the statute
books of our country Jim Crow
car laws like Salem witchcraft I
must run a certain course but
when friends of right and reason
think over these matters the
will consider arguments used for
them in the same way as other
hallucinations are hold Then 1
will say above all get friends
We do not hate the Southern
white man We love l imand
especially when he treats us
justly
