A “colored” Juror in Brooklyn City Court

A Colored Juror  At the opening of the September term of the Brooklyn City Court on Monday, Mr. Robert Johnson, a colored man, was impanneled as a juror.   He served on one case, and appeared to  act quite intelligently.  The fact of the presence of a colored man in the jury box, however, was the cause of considerable. remark.   Here is another proof that color-prejudice is vincible.    The first colored student at Harvard College, Mr.  Richard T. Greener, entered the Freshman class on Friday.  He is a young many of sterling character, and has the best wishes of many.
