Excerpt from Some Aspects of the Race Problem in the SouthOn Christmas clay, 1898, the writer preached a sermon in the First Presbyterian Church, Asheville, on Our Duty to the Negroes. The congregation was composed of persons representing the four quarters of the Union, many of whom have asked that the sermon be published. A condensed report appeared in the columns of The Asheville Daily Citizen, and this report excited considerable interest among those who had not heard the discourse.Several of the negro pastors in the city have expressed a desire to have copies of the sermon for circulation among their people. In addition to these requests, there comes one from the Rev. D. Clay Lilly, Secretary of Colored Evangelization for the Southern Presbyterian Church, for fifteen hundred copies, to be issued by the Committee having this work in charge.These requests coming from so many independent sources, and from so many classes of persons supposed to have divergent views on the subject treated, seem to indicate that some good might be accomplished by the publication of the substance of what was said. The sermon was preached from outline notes and could not be reproduced in the exact form in which it was delivered. It has seemed best in preparing it for publication, to alter its character somewhat, and to send it forth as a paper rather than as a sermon. The points discussed are the same, but the proportion of the parts has been changed, much more space being given in the paper to the historical and sociological setting. Use has been made of some material that has appeared since the sermon was delivered.When the writer was a boy thirteen and fourteen years of age he taught during two scholastic years a night school for colored men. He was for several years a teacher in a Sunday school for negroes and afterwards superintendent of the school. From his boyhood he has been interested in the advancement of the negro race.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
