About this Item

Title
The duty which the colored people owe to themselves : a sermon delivered at Metzerott Hall, Washington, D.C., November 17, 1867
Summary
A sermon on African American pride and potential in the US. Boynton says blacks should be proud of being black; each should develop his personality and talents to show what blacks can do and not just imitate white society or attempts to merge with it. Aim to be a perfect black man, Boynton argues, accept the lot God has given you, and make the best of it.
