Title: Anglo-African - September 9, 1865

Speaker or author: editor

Newspaper or publication: Anglo-African (1863 - 1865)

The writer explains that African Americans from the northern states are traveling south to offer education to the newly freed slaves. This action, he believes, is more beneficial to them than the good intentions of white educators who may unconsciously instill a feeling of inferiority and low self-esteem to those they teach. These well-intentioned white teachers in referring to newly freed slaves as "poor unfortunate creatures" are already assuming that the rescue of those they consider less than human.
