Lecture by John S. Rock

May 11, 1855

Here are notes taken at a lecture by the “colored dentist of Boston”, who has recently lectured in several places in the city.  The title of the lecture is “On the Unity of the Human Race, and the Aggressions of the Slave Power”.   The article ends:  “We have carefully avoided many of his able and eloquent points, and have merely given an outline, as it is the intention of many of his friends to have him repeat it, as the evening was stormy, and many were thus prevented from hearing him…We believe he received a silver medal, in 1851, for a prize essay on Temperance.”
