“Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children”
“…But now another race of people have come. They build many things and leave behind much refuse. They make many laws which the rich may break, but not the poor…”
“Look at me. See if I am poor, or my people either. The whites may get me at last, as you say, but I will have good times till then. You are fools to make yourselves slaves to a piece of fat bacon, some hard-tack, and a little sugar and coffee”.
“If we must die, we die defending our rights”.
