About this Item

Title

  • A constitutional defense of the Negro

Summary

  • Crapsey, one of the most famous and influential clerics in the Episcopal Church, a writer on religion, and an African American, sharply criticizes southern whites' attitudes towards African Americans. He sees them perpetuating slavery by depriving African Americans of the franchise after the Civil War and makes a plea for recognition of African American civil rights, especially the right to vote. Crapsey calls upon African Americans to organize and to agitate for their rights as citizens under the US Constitution.
