Hiram Rhodes Revels

Educator, Minister, 1st African American U.S. Senator, (R) Mississippi

I hold that establishing mixed schools will not harm the white race. I am their friend. I said in Mississippi, and I say here, and I say everywhere, that I would abandon the Republican party if it went into any measures of legislation really damaging to any portion of the white race, but it is not in the Republican party to do that.
