Excerpt from Hubert Harrison's "Untamed, Untamable African" Diary Entry of November 11, 1907 Hubert Harrison was 24 at the time

"Oh Africa! When shall be the term of thy long degradation? Behold here, even now, I pledge thee, O my Mother, that I shall devote my years to thee, shall work for thy redemption, shall love thee and be proud of thee and glory in thy power now lying dormant and shall strive to bring it to the light. Take my youth, my labors, my love, my all and do thou when I shall have died for thee, take me to thy bosom, an untamed, untamable African." -- Hubert Harrison
