Excerpt from The Negro in the History of the United States: From the Beginning of English Settlements in America, 1607, to the Present Time; With the Constitution of the United States and Illustrations
An urgent need and a loud and serious call for a faithful account of the Negro in the United States, as he has moved and had his being, in the midst of material things, as a bondman and as a citizen, are the aims which this work hopes to answer. It is also felt that the nature of such a work requires, like all history, a logical and faithful setting in time, place and environment, natural and artificial, to render it something more than a myth or a fable. The achievements of the Negro, therefore, and the inżuence, silent and active, which he has exerted on American life and the inżuence of that life upon him, are treated as a part of the unit of American progress and enlight enment.
