IN MEMORY OF THE MANY MOTHERS WHO
WERE LOYAL IN TENSE AND TRYING
TIMES, THIS VOLUME IS AFFECTIONATELY
The National Association of Colored Women of
America and Canada
Through all the blight of slavery
They kept their womanhood ,
And now they march with heads erect ,
To fight for all things good ,
Nor care for scorn nor seek for praise ,
Just so they please their God .
--Clara Ann Thompson .
