Hubert Harrison and "the stern realities of poverty"

Destiny sent him [Hubert Harrison] into this world very poor. And if this were not enough, she gave him a critical mind, a candid tongue, . . . a passion for knowledge; on top of all that a black skin, and sent him to America.
J. A. ROGERS

I have often thought that this contact with the stern realities of poverty was good for me. It has kept my heart open to the call of those who are down and has kept me from giving myself such airs as might make a chasm between myself and my people.

HUBERT HARRISON
