No Negro Woman

c. August 7-10, 1916 — Tenth Biennial convention, National Association of Colored Women’s Clubs, Bethel A.M.E. Church, Baltimore MD


No negro woman can afford to be an indifferent spectator of the social, moral, religious, economic, and uplift problems that are agitated around us. No negro woman can afford to be idle but must take an active personal interest in everything that concerns the welfare of her home, her church, her community, her state . . . her religion . . . for once [women] have struck out in this great work [they] are doing the work of God . . . and when God is with us who can be against us?
