Speaker or author: editor
Newspaper or publication: Voice of the Fugitive (1851 - 1852)
After living off charity and donations of food and clothing, the editor tells his readers that the time has come for the fugitive slaves and the poor to begin fending for themselves. He suggests that now they "produce what they consume" and stop living as beggars. The cost of shipping donations of food and clothing would be better spent on education and land.
