Excerpt from Plain Counsels for Freedmen: In Sixteen Brief Lectures
Every man is born into the world with the right to his own life, to personal liberty, and to inherit, earn, own, and hold property. These rights are given to him by the great God; not because he is a white man, a red man, or a black man, but because he is a man.
A man may lose his right to life, by murder; to liberty, by theft; and to property in many ways; but he loses these rights for himself alone, and not for his children, his neighbors, or his race. God means that every child born shall have a fair chance; and to take away from any one any of the rights named, before any wrong is done, is a high crime.
Now, for hundreds of years, these rights were taken from you. You were slaves.
