10. T. G. Steward, The Person of Color, A Lecture Delivered in the Congregational Church, of Helena, Montana (Philadelphia: A. M. E. Publishing House, 1893). (16 p.)

Lecture concerning the etymology of the word “colored” as it applies to persons of mixed ancestry in the United States with observations and statistics concerning the successful integration of men and women of color into the American society. The speaker is optimistic about the eventual outcome. “The Afro-American [of mixed ancestry] is a new race, a race without a historic precedent; what it may be, or do, can only be faintly conjectured; but viewed from every standpoint it is a race full of promise.”
