Testimony of a Richmond Preacher

Dr. A. E. Dickinson editor of the Religious Herald views on the "negro problem."

“…I do not speak as a party man, but as one who is honestly looking to the good of the whole people–colored as well as white.  You may say that I am less concerned about the colored folk than you are, but you are mistaken to that.  With no desire to boast, I tell you that I am doing the best that I can to elevate the colored people, and thousands more of the white people of the South are doing far more than I am doing, for they have more ability than I have with which to help…"
