Excerpt from The Negro; His Needs and Claims: Two Addresses Delivered in the Church of Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, on Sunday, Oct; 14, 1883 Although in my short lifetime I have seen and heard many things to startle and surprise me, yet never, I confess, was I more surprised than on receiving, away down in Georgia, an invitation to speak here in Plymouth Church and from Plymouth pulpit. At first I could not but believe that there was something wrong about the matter, that an invitation intended for some clergyman in my city had in some way been forwarded to me through mistake. Accordingly I wrote at once to Brother Halliday, informing him of the fact that I am not of the ministerial order; but stating, at the same time, in a half humorous way, that if such a talk as a layman can make would be acceptable, I should be with him on the second Sunday in October. He replied to me that my name was down on his programme for this very day. That, of course, settled the question. But now there arose another, and one of a more embarassing nature, namely, What shall I say to that people? What can I say to the congregation of Henry Ward Beecher, either for their edification or their instruction? Is there a topic on which I can speak, is there a subject which I can discuss, which has not already been discussed in their presence with an ability infinitely superior, and an eloquence wide-world renowned? It was in the midst of such musings and queryings that it occurred to my mind that there was just one subject which I might take with propriety, and, perhaps, with success, before that enlightened, sympathetic and Christian audience, namely, the needs and claims of my people - their pressing needs, their rightful claims. With such a subject, I thought, I might be a little more conversant than a stranger well could be. On such a subject I might be able, perhaps, to say a few more things, and to say them with a little more feeling and accuracy, at least than one not fully identified with the race possibly could.
