The Church and the Negro. Five Editorial Articles from The Church Standard [cover title]

Philadelphia: 1906. 28pp. Original printed wrappers, stapled. Minor wear and soiling. Very good. Item #1725

A reprinting of five articles from The Church Standard discussing the Atlanta race riot of 1906. In September 1906, white mobs, enflamed by election issues and unsubstantiated newspaper reports of Black men attacking white women, assaulted Black neighborhoods over the course of three days, killing dozens of Atlanta's Black citizens. The present work calls for the Episcopal Church to act against discrimination, to appoint African-American bishops, and points out other related reforms and concerns. Only a handful of copies in OCLC.
