_"The object of these sketches is to awaken sympathy and feeling for the African race, as they exist among us; to show their wrongs and sorrows, under a system so necessarily cruel and unjust as to defeat and do away the good effects of all that can be attempted for them, by their best friends, under it.
--Harriet Beecher Stowe Author's preface from Uncle Tom's Cabin
"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." - Frederick Douglass.
