Speaker or author: editor
Newspaper or publication: Weekly Anglo-African (1859 - 1862)
The writer divides the social goals of African Americans into two categories: those who seek elevation and what he describes as "recognition from a dominant class," and those who care only for "labor" (they live to work). He makes a distinction in this way between employment and labor. He reminds them, however, that only by working together towards a common goal can they ensure their rightful place as free human beings.
