1890-07-04-AtlantaConstitution-p5-ANegroConvention - A NEGRO CONVENTION Is What Hon. C. H. J. Taylor...
A NEGRO CONVENTION Is What Hon. C. H. J. Taylor Wants to Arrange Now. Hon. C. TJ. J Tavlnr has inst retnm«><l from Birmingham where he has been consulting with leading Alabama negroes about his contemplated convention of southern negroes. Taylor Is quite enthusiastic over his work. His scheme appears to be a good one, He wants every state in the union having negro residents tefromeverp congressional district and two urn the state at large, unless tbe state be a southern one. In that event, he wants the delegation delegation at large to be ten strong. This, be says, must be done in order to give the south, where most of the negroes live, a control. Taylor's idea is to have, for delegates, negroes who are respected at their homes by both races. He wants everv member to be a nronertv owner if possible and all to be able to read and write.
