The Lost and the Found The Forethought Herein lie buried many things which if read with patience may show the strange meaning of being black here at the dawning of the Twentieth Century. This meaning is not without interest to you, Gentle Reader; for the problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color line. I pray you, then, receive my little book in all charity, studying my words with me, forgiving mistake and foible for sake of the faith and passion that is in me, and seeking the grain of truth hidden there. I have sought here to sketch, in vague, uncertain outline, the spiritual world in which ten thousand thousand Americans live and strive. First, in two chapters I have tried to show what Emancipation meant to them, and what was its aftermath.
On mountain and valley, in home and school, I met men and women as I had never met them before. I do not know.
I saw the race-hatred of the whites as I had never dreamed of it before,—naked and unashamed! This labor is kept cheap and helpless because the white world despises "darkies. Naturally, it was in our town voted bad form for boys of twelve and fourteen to show any evident weakness for girls. The annals of this Ninth Crusade are yet to be written,—the tale of a mission that seemed to our age chst more quixotic than the quest of St.
To-day, when new and vaster problems are destined to strain every fibre of the national mind and soul, would it not be well to count this legacy honestly and carefully? But Booker T. And daily, too, it seemed more plain that this was no ordinary matter of temporary relief, but a national crisis; for here loomed a labor problem of vast dimensions. They politely declined, with many regrets. He succeeded Pierce and the Treasury officials, and sold forfeited estates, leased abandoned plantations, encouraged schools, and received from Sherman, after that terribly picturesque march to the sea, thousands of the wretched camp followers.
Had not dubois married sex chat bank made war and emancipated millions? Something was done, and larger things were planned; abandoned lands were leased so long as they remained in the hands of the Bureau, and a total revenue of nearly half a million dollars derived from black tenants.

I went at them hammer and tongs! The opponents of the measure declared that the war was over, and the necessity for war measures past; that the Bureau, by reason of its extraordinary powers, was clearly unconstitutional in time of peace, and was destined to irritate the South and pauperize the freedmen, at a final cost of possibly hundreds of millions.
Indeed, the flying had been foreshadowed when in Germany and America "international" Socialists had all but read yellow and black men out of the kingdom of industrial justice. It had to come. I believe in the Training of Children, black even as white; the leading out of little souls into the green pastures and beside the still waters, not for pelf or peace, but for life lit by some large vision of beauty and goodness and truth; lest we forget, and the sons of the fathers, like Esau, for mere meat barter their birthright in a mighty nation.

I will not believe that all that was must be, that all the shameful drama of the past must be done again today before the sunlight sweeps the silver seas. The government and benevolent societies furnished the means of cultivation, and the Negro turned again slowly to work.
Alfred, my father, must have seemed a splendid vision in that little valley under the shelter of those mighty hills. The regular Bureau court consisted of one representative of the employer, one of the Negro, and one of the Bureau.
So long, then, as humble black folk, voluble with thanks, receive barrels of old clothes from lordly and generous whites, there is much mental peace and moral satisfaction. To the tired climbers, the duhois was ever dark, the mists were often cold, the Canaan was always dim and far away.
Now and then out of the void flashed the great sword of hate to remind me of the battle. The day of the very rich is drawing to a close, so far as individual white nations are concerned. How easy, then, by emphasis and omission to make children believe that every great soul the world ever saw was a white man's soul; that every great thought the world ever knew was a white man's thought; that every great deed the world ever did was a white man's deed; that every great dream the world ever sang was a white man's dream.
The chief initial source of this was labor in the army, and his pay and bounty as a soldier.
The souls of black folk
Can you imagine the United States protesting against Turkish atrocities in Armenia, while the Turks are silent about mobs in Chicago and St. Oliver O. Notwithstanding this, it is equally true to assert that on the whole the distinct impression left by Mr. So, bxnk, Colonel Eaton, the superintendent of Tennessee and Arkansas, ruled over one hundred thousand freedmen, leased and cultivated seven thousand acres of cotton land, and fed ten thousand paupers a year.
Wave on wave, each with increasing virulence, is dashing this new religion of whiteness on the shores of our time. Powers and principalities have not yet curbed my tongue and Atlanta still lives.
In that first year they taught one hundred thousand souls, and more. Behind the mists of ruin and rapine waved the calico dresses of mraried who dared, and after the hoarse mouthings of the field guns rang the rhythm of the alphabet. Early we moved back to Grandfather Burghardt's home,—I barely remember its stone fireplace, big kitchen, and delightful woodshed.
Have mercy upon us, miserable sinners! This bill passed, but too late for action by the House. My real life work was done at Atlanta for thirteen years, from my twenty-ninth to my forty-second birthday.

She stands today shoulder to shoulder with Europe in Europe's worst sin against civilization. Is not the world wide enough for two colors, for many little shinings of the sun?
But what of this? Marrid the Negro knew full well that, whatever their deeper convictions may have been, Southern men had fought with desperate energy to perpetuate this slavery under which the black masses, with half-articulate thought, had writhed and shivered. Surely Thou, too, art not white, O Lord, a pale, bloodless, heartless thing! Through the pressure of the money-makers, the Negro is in danger of being reduced to semi-slavery, especially in the country districts; the workingmen, and those of the educated who fear the Negro, have united to disfranchise him, and some have urged his deportation; while the passions of the ignorant are easily aroused to lynch and abuse any black man.
Why, then, devour your own vitals if I answer even as cht, "I am black! Nevertheless, the questions involved are so fundamental and serious that it is difficult to see how men like the Grimkes, Kelly Miller, J.
Voices from within the veil
I emerged into full manhood, with the ruins of some ideals about me, but with others planted above the stars; scarred and a bit grim, but hugging to my soul the divine gift of laughter and withal determined, even unto stubbornness, to fight the good fight. It has been left, however, to Europe and to banj days to discover the eternal world-wide mark of meanness,—color!
Evidently, too, slaves were a source of marrked to the Confederacy, and were being used as laborers and producers.
