NOTED NEGRO WOMEN
THEIR TRIUMPHS AND ACTIVITIES
By Monroe Alphus Majors
"A race, no less than an nation, is prosperous in proportion to the intelligence of its women."
---
The criterion for Negro civilization is the intelligence, purity and high motives of its women.
---
THE HIGHEST MARK OF OUR PROSPERITY, AND THE STRONGEST PROOFS OF NEGRO CAPACITY TO MASTER THE SCIENCES AND FINE ARTS, ARE EVINCED BY THE ADVANCED POSITIONS TO WHICH NEGRO WOMEN HAVE ATTAINED.
---
"I will go forth 'mong men, mailed in the armor of a pure intent.
"Grant duties are before me, and great deeds, and whether crowned or crownless when I fall, it matters not, so as Gods work is done."

That called me from native walks away!"
