Our Home Field, September 1910

Text on scroll reads: "The problem of the Negro race in the South is religious rather than political. The fairest omen of the present on this towering question is the evident increase of interest among Southern white Christians in the religious uplift of the black people. We cannot aid the Negro to his best self-realization without advancing further ourselves. We cannot hold him down without being hindered from coming to our own best race-expression. — B.D. Gray, D.D. [Doctor of Divinity]"
