In Tribute to Miss Anthony

April 1, 1906 — Equal Suffrage League of Brooklyn, National Association of Colored Women, Bridge Street A.M.E. Church, New York City


We colored women own [sic] her a two-fold debt of gratitude. Her persecutions were greater than those of Garrison or Phillips. She was never a coward, not even among pistols. She contributed her work, but while I would not attempt to try to underage her work, there is almost as much work to-day as there was fifty or sixty years ago. In many States colored men are deprived of their right to vote and are held as slaves in peonage.
