Charles Lenox Remond , a “darkey”, cursed for speaking at Faneuil Hall

From the Boston Daily , quoted in the November 4, 1842 Liberator. The account tells of a “darkey” who was not listened to when he spoke in a gathering at Faneuil Hall.   The Liberator, in a subsequent edition,  makes clear that the person referred to was Charles Lenox Remond, close friend of Garrison, and one of those who had “sat-out” the London Convention, two years earlier, protesting the exclusion of women delegates from America.
