"We are men. We have souls, we have passions, we have feelings, we have hopes, we have desires, like any other race in the world. The cry is raised all over the world today of Canada for the Canadians, of America for the Americans, of England for the English, of France for the French, of Germany for the Germans, do you think it is unreasonable that we, the Blacks of the world, should raise the cry of Africa for the Africans? I know no national boundary where the Negro is concerned. The whole world is my province until Africa is free."
