Project Uplift Literacy

PROJECT UPLIFT LITERACY
IN THEIR OWN WORDS
HISTORICAL SPEECH
REV. FRANCIS J. GRIMKE
NOVEMBER 20, 1898

I have gone back 118 years this morning to recapture the words of Rev. Francis J. Grimke who spoke about the struggle within the struggle to keep a people united for a common cause. The common cause that I would like to illuminate this morning is the issue of illiteracy in our communities.
