Horace Mann and Colored Schools

December 24, 1847

An article critical of Mann, who, it claims, has not given aid to the campaign for equal school rights for colored children.  He has not helped either in Nantucket or in Boston, to change practices which keep colored children from going to school with white children.   “All this exits in Boston. … Against it Horace Mann has yet to utter his first word.”
