Colored Citizens of Detroit

November 18, 1853

Here is an account of a meeting of colored citizens, October 25, 1853,  a large meeting, held at the AME Church. Resolutions are passed, among them one which “condemns as unjust” two recent Daily Democrat articles attacking Garrison and the Fosters. They appoint a committee to draft a constitution and by-laws for a proposed association to be known as the Sons and Daughters of Liberty.
