24. B. W. Arnett, The Black Laws! Speech of Hon. B. W. Arnett, of Greene County, in the Ohio House of Representatives, March 10, 1886 (N.p., [1886?]). (17 p.)

Speech advocating the repeal of three sections of the Ohio code mandating segregated public schools and prohibiting miscegenation. The speaker concludes with this paragraph. “Seeing, then, that we are so intimately connected with each other as men and citizens, what wicked prejudice it is to have laws separating our children while learning their duty to themselves, their neighbor, to society, to country and their God; let us do our duty, and in doing this the walls of separation will crumble and fall.”
