Civil Rights. The Outrage of the Supreme Court of the United States upon the Black Man. Reviewed in a Reply to the New York "Voice," the Great Temperance Paper of the United States
Letters written by Bishop Henry McNeal Turner, criticizing the Supreme Court's decision to declare the Civil Rights Act of 1875 unconstitutional. The first contains excerpts from the Act and the Court's majority and dissenting opinions. The second is an attack on the Court's decision. In it, Turner calls on Church members to pray for a reorganized Supreme Court, and for those who supported the Act of 1875. He also calls for mass meetings and petitions to promote a new civil rights act.
