The Negro citizen by his demon

that he is not content, that he has
a burning desire to break down the
barriers which prevent his normal
passage and patronage in places
open to the public, that he has a
determined discontent with a sit

the opportunities, freedoms of
choice, and privileges which are
afforded as a matter of course to
other citizens. Anyone who hasn't
received this message doesn't un
derstand human nature.

has been 10 years!
I want to take this opportunity to
stress upon you the importance of

very inconvenient for Miss Wight
