Excerpt from Alumnae News of the North Carolina College for Women, Vol. 11 The time has already come when the white people Should understand the growth and development of the negro, and certainly better introduction to such appreciation can be had than in reading the life of Washington. For Washington knew the white man, had better friends than the white men of Georgia and Alabama, as well as those of the rth. He was always fair and square, never Speaking in the rth what he had t Spoken in the south, and never Speaking to negro audiences what he had t Spoken to white audiences. That is why he was asked to make an address at the great Cotton States Exposition, in Atlanta, 1895, and that is why, at the close of his wonderful speech, Goverr Bullock rushed across the stage and seized the speaker's hand while the thousands present were carried into a frenzy of cheering.
