“The rights of the freedman, which are not yet secured to him, are the direct reverse of the wrongs committed against him. I never could detect the shadow of a reason why the color of the skin should impair the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Mr. President, fellow citizens, why am I called upon to speak, what do I have to do w/ your independence? The blessings in which you enjoy, bequeathed by your fathers …are not enjoyed by me. The 4th of July is yours, not mine. What to the slave is your 4th of July …A day that means gross injustice, a sham, empty promises. The 4th of July is yours, not mine….

Sculpture in lincoln park here in dc a passage from her last will and testament engraved on side l.jpg

Sculpture by Robert Berks,1974

I leave you love. I leave you hope. I leave you the challenge of developing confidence in one another. I leave you a thirst for education. I leave you a respect for the use of power. I leave you faith. I leave you racial dignity. I leave you a desire to live harmoniously with your fellow men. I leave you, finally, a responsibility to our young people
