Subtitle: A Disfranchised People.
Speaker or author: editor
Newspaper or publication: Colored American (1837 - 1842)
The writer comments on the state of disfranchisement that free African Americans find themselves in. This condition marginalizes them from the rest of the population and they feel not only that their right to citizenship is in question, but their human rights as well. (This editorial will be continued in upcoming issues.)
