Colored Minister denied seat on rail coach

The driver of the coach makes it clear that he will “have no damned nigger” on his coach.   Garrison comments: “Such conduct deserves the severest reprehension.  But, while our churches are disgraced by ‘negro pews’, it is unreasonable to expect anything better from proprietor and drivers of stages.”  (See Liberator, March 29, 1839)
