Subtitle: Skin Deep Temperance.
Speaker or author: editor
Newspaper or publication: Voice of the Fugitive (1851 - 1852)
The writer questions the motivation of abolitionists who will shun the Church and political factions due to their alliance with slavery, yet accept organizations like the Sons of Temperance who have known slave holders among their members. While the Sons of Temperance Society was established with strong moral values, they refuse to allow people of African descent to be members.
