JOHN SWINTON
American journalist and editor
(1829 - 1901)

The very best thing we can do for the black man or for the white, is to strive with all our might to promote and secure the establishment of his inalienable rights.
      - [Emancipation Day]

When I recall the negro as I knew him during the existence of slavery, in the Carolinas, in the States of the Gulf, and in those along the Mississippi--when I behold the improvement that has been brought about in his being and condition since his liberation--I feel bound to say that he is doing as well as could be expected, and to express the opinion that he will do yet better under a larger liberty. He has been transformed within a generation, and the work of transformation will go on steadily, if it be not impeded.
      - [Emancipation Day]
