Hubert Harrison -- "The Touchstone"





“Politically, the Negro is the touchstone of the modern democratic idea. The presence of the Negro puts our democracy to the test and reveals the falsity of it . . . [True democracy and equality implies] a revolution . . . startling to even think of.”

-- “The Negro and Socialism,” 1911 --
