22. William Kimberly Palmer, The Nobility of the Negro (New Rochelle, NY: By the author, 1902). (15 p.)

Celebration of the black race and its accomplishments. The pamphlet is dedicated “to the Negro by one who has unbounded faith in their ability, and determination to achieve their own destiny, aided by the Supreme Law Giver of the Nations.” The author blames their shortcomings on slavery. “The crimes wrought by some black men are explained to some extent by the long servitude of slavery, for it will take years of kind and considerate treatment and the help of Almighty God to obliterate the traces of oppression.”
