A Plea For The Oppressed, In Her Words, My Voice, Lucy Stanton
Two weeks before America would enact the Fugitive Slave Law which basically put a target on the back of every living black person not residing as a slave. This remarkable woman Lucy Stanton discussed the ills of this insane system that had the America in its grasp and seemed destined to tear this nation asunder. Lucy Stanton was likely the very first black woman to complete a four-year course of study at a university. She spoke that at Oberlin College which she had just completed that academic feat. Lucy Stanton, was indeed a warrior for justice and as I celebrate black women in history. I continue my journey to ensure that our black history need never be a black mystery, in her words, my voice, Lucy Stanton.
