was brave, he was honest, he was true
and never failed to speak out for his
people, and was uncompromising in

manhood rights. On all occasions he
condemned the "Jim Crow" Jaw, and
declared that it was a step backwards
in civilization. Ho believed in the
future of his people. He won his place
in their hearts by the service ho rend

Dr. Morris was born in Murrayv

tion as president of the Convention
there was a church membership in

at the close of his lifo it had reached
