28. Frederick Douglass, “The Future of the Colored Race,” North American Review (May 1886): 437-40.
Prophecy that African Americans will be absorbed by the dominant white culture. “My strongest conviction as to the future of the negro therefore is that he will not be expatriated nor annihilated, nor will he forever remain a separate and distinct race from the people around him, but that he will be absorbed, assimilated, and will only appear finally, as the Phœnicians now appear on the shores of the Shannon, in the features of a blended race.” (The collection has another copy of this article in volume 78 [no. 10].)
