ISEGBO EXPOSITION IX JULY
TO BE HELD I> RICHMOND
Tlie Great Exposition and Celebration
in Behalf of tfie Aegro or
There will^ be held in the city of
Hichmond, Va., from July 5 to 27 a
^ mammoth exposition and celebration
in commemoration of tf:e fiftieth anniversary
of the emancipation of the
negro, under the auspices of the Negro
Historical and Industrial associ-1
For this purpose, the United States j
.government, by an act of congress, j
ihas appropriated fifty-five thousand
dollars. While t)':is amount was a small
item, it carried with it the national
endorsement to hold this exposition.
As a further evidence of this fact,
President Wilson and his cabinet will
visit the exposition eiti-er on the open- ing
or some other day.
Large exhibits will be sent to Richmond
from nearly every industrial
school in the country. The colored
people, as a uniii are preparing a. tuilection
of specimens of our progress
in fifty years. The nation expects to
see at this exposition t|e best evidences
of thrift and progress of the
negro, and should this event fall short
of toe expectations 01 me guvaumcut
and other spectators, it would do more
to retard ti':e race than could be overcome
in a generation. The white people
are much interested in tlie success
of this exposition and are working to
make the exposition an event for
wfcich the nation will be proud. Tens
of thousands of them will -visit the
.ovnncitinn to rnmmend or condemn the
strides of the negro in the last fifty !
The philanthropists, who in the past
have contributed t::eir millions, will
be there, and should the negro make
a poor showing, it would, in? many in
stances, discourage mose wno are contributing
to the uplift of tne race. It
is hoped, therefore, that every member
of the race will do something toward
making this the desired success.
They should take personal interest in
this exposition, not only in sending
splendid exhibits of every kind worthy
of demonstration, including agriculture,
but t':ey should visit the expositho
tpric nf thousands. Thev
UVU KfJ vv**w V*
should come from every section of
the country. This is not for any individual
or body of individuals, but
for the benefit of-the entire race. It
is a race institution. It must be a
success; for a failure will retard the
