“But, Doctor, what kind of society would we have if we put down the bars
and admitted everybody to social equality?”

“Try to create a moral sentiment in the nation, which will consider a wrong done
to the weakest of them as a wrong done to the whole community. Whenever you find… public men too noble to be tricky and too honest to pander to the prejudices of the people, stand by them and give them your moral support…It can’t come too soon.”

Iola Leroy, Frances Harper
