The black woman of the South : her neglects and her needs
Other Title
Address of Dr. Alexander Crummell
Summary
Crummell, pastor of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., from 1879-1898, spoke out for black liberation and founded the Negro Academy. This speech focuses on the status of African American women in slavery, which Crummell says was worse than for men because women were more isolated. To improve the lot of black women within the present generation, Crummell proposes that "sisterhoods" be sent into the rural South to train and teach black women and that industrial schools be established for them in the South as well.
