SCOPE OF DR. BOYD’S SPEECH
|n Remarkable Address on “Hindrances

Toledo, O. Practical, thorough. In
simple language, but with u force that

H. Boyd, 1). 1).. of Nashville, Tenu.. de
livered one of the principal addresses
Thursday. Nov. 27, to the mammoth
emancipation celebration being held In
this city this week. The occasion was
northern Ohio’s celebration of the fifti
eth anniversary of Lincoln’s issuance of
the emancipation proclamation, which
removed the shackles from millions of
slaves in the United States.
Since the early sixties hundreds of
the descendants of these ex-slaves have
migrated to the northern states. To
ledo, one of the principal cities in the
underground railway system that be
came famous during those days of
bondage, has been favored with a rep
resentative population of the descend
ants of these people. In former days
many of these slaves found refuge by
coming to this port on Lake Erie.

DR. RICHARD F. BOTD.
ridge, toiled In the fields in the noon
day sun, was one of the emancipated;
hence, speaking not from theory, but
from actual knowledge, he spoke for
one hour on “Hindrances That Help.”
A magnificent audience greeted him. In
which were distinguished citizens from
over the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illi
nois, Michigan and Kentucky.
Dr. Boyd said in part:
“In the half century of our progress
the fifty years have been pregnant, with
hardships. Discriminations and ad
verse legislation have not daunted the
courage of our people, for with their
thrift and energy they have overcome
the obstacles that were placed in their
way. They have surmounted, climbed
over, dug under and gone around the
Alps of opposition and the pyramids of
discrimination. The Negro Ins Imi
tated the Caucasian with his inventive
genius in solving ills own problem, for
they have even made aerial flights in
the atmosphere of sectional hnt* and
race prejudice and have gone from one
peak of prominence to another in their
efforts to find a more favorable cli
matic and atmospheric condition.
“your gathering here to give recogni
tion as well as encouragement to the
accomplishment of these people, sur
rounded as you are by the friends who
have been philanthropic in mind ns
well as in means, with evidence of
progress on every side, make, this a
year of jubilee Indeed. The race to
which we belong might well be called
the ‘child race.’ hut the fact that It
lias thrown off its swaddling clothes
before It has reached the half ><*ntury
mark Is evidence conclusive that It
will grow Into hardy manhood and
womanhood ere it has attained irs ma
“The conditions that confront us to
day as a people have often been view
ed as hindrances. Even in the north
ern states, where you have been neens
tomed to profit by your labor and en
joy the pursuit of life, liberty and hap
piness. as guaranteed you by fin* fram
ers of the constitution, a splendid docu
ment in itself, you have begun to flinch
under sentiment that Is slowly bnt
surely creeping Into these parts. The
race us a whole and the people at large
are now awakening to the sensibilities
of the crying need of not only Intel
lectual and educational advantages but
of religious development for a people
who are now potent factors In the
financial and business world.
“Hindrances that have been placed
in the front and have been magnified
by an adverse press, daily, weekly and
periodically, have not altogether been
properly or Advantageously portrayed.
In many Instances they have been a*
a mirage, which the wayfaring travelei
sees In the distance, and while, like
Bnnquo’s ghost. It will not down it has
been made to move on and on further
and further away before the onrush of
this civilized people, who are steadily
advancing toward It.
"These hindrances have had a tend
ency, as It were, to develop the keen
er side and the bettor part of the pres
ent generation. I declare unto you
that, notwithstanding the magnitude
of some of the have
been pluced across our paX, we are
really making progress. These were
necessary for the development of the
lace. We are now going through tha
fiery furnace, as it were, nrnl all im
purities are being burned away, but we
will come out pure gold, well tried.”
DR. BOYD’S SUCCESS IN
Though a great denominational
lender, being the founder, pres
ent secretary and manager of the
National Baptist Publishing
House, the largest publishing
plant owned and controlled by
Negroes in the world, having re
ported a business of more than
$200,000 during the past fiscal
year, Dr. Richard H. Boyd is a
practical business mnn, being
president of the One Cent Sav
ings bank, Nashville, Tenn.
lie is also president of the Na
tional Negro Doll company,
which has for its motto “Negro
Dolls For Negro Children;” pres
ident of the National Baptist
Church Supply company; presi
dent Nashville Globe Publishing
compuny and secretary of the
home mission l»onrd of the na
tional Baptist convention.
He has lived to see himself, an
ex-slave, at the head of institu
tions that in 1012 handled more
than $1,000,000 and is one of the
few men of the race who have
without philanthropic aid made
their way from Ignorance and su
perstition into the light of prom
inence and recognition by nil
races without leaving their peo
ple. The Baptist denomination,
represented by 2,500.000 commu
nicants. has given him high hon
ors and followed bis lead for the
past score of years.
The local committee which had
charge of this celebration and
which secured the sendees of
Dr. Boyd to make one of the
principal addresses was headed
by Rev. J. C. Taylor, D. D.. pas
tor of the Temple Baptist church
in Toledo. This celebration was
one of the biggest demonstra
tions ever held by our people
on Thanksgiving day.
