The Colored American Working Man of the New Time

Excerpt from The Colored American Working Man of the New Time: An Address Delivered Before the State Agricultural and Mechanical College for the Colored Race, at Greensboro, May 26, 1898 I speak to day to you, young men and women of North Car' olina, for whom your great state has established this school of Industrial Education. On this theme. The American Working man of the New Time. I would try to show you what the wisest people of every state and of the nation are trying to do for you through the generous expenditure of money by the nation and the commonwealth for the training of the hand in connection with the head and the heart, for a true American manhood and womanhood. I warn you to give no heed to the class of misin formed and over-excited leaders of your own race, or the back number educators of any race, who are crying aloud that this new interest in Industrial Education for the uplift of your peo ple is only a new device for your humiliation and permanent sub jection to an American peasant class. Which is only another name for the virtual re-establishment of the slave system of a generation ago. I know, of course, that every state in this Uh ion has its due supply of men and women, stupid enough to honestly believe such a thing possible as the permanent shunting of any class or race of the American people off upon a side-track of the great central highway of American civilization. But I do not believe that you, young men and women. For whom this grand old commonwealth has already done so much and so well, will be shaken in your faith in the permanent good will and wis dom of the American people in your behalf.
