Emancipation Anniversary Sermon Collection
This collection contains a sermon written around 1898 regarding 35 years of slavery emancipation, first initiated during the United States Civil War in 1863 by President Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation. The unidentified author speaks at length about the contemporary struggles of Black Americans--referred to in the sermon as "colored people," their contributions and representation throughout United States history and to civilization at large, and the responsibilities they hold for one another as people and parents, particularly regarding men protecting women and the educational needs of children. The origin of the sermon--both in whom is speaking and where they were speaking from--is unknown.
