Excerpt from Some Examples in Self-Help and Success Among Colored People, and of Co-Operation and Cordial Relations Between the Races in America
It is the old story of Hercules and the wagoner. The best help is self-help. For it is ever the one that is nearest at hand.
The race that is learning the lesson of self-help is a race that is learning the secret of success and of progress.
The following paragraphs show that the Negro does not rely wholly upon help outside of himself, but that he is bracing his sturdy shoulders against the wheels of his wagon of progress, that he is helping himself to advance on the rough road of life in the care Of his sick, in home-getting, in making a place for him self in the business world and in winning the respect, sympathy and co - Operation of many Of the best white people. Dr. George C. Hall, of Chicago, in the following paragraphs relates the story of self-help in Negro hospitals.
