The March of Intellect – Alexander Dumas

April 26, 1844

A notice that Dumas, “a colored man and member of the French Institute”, has engaged a book-seller in Paris, to furnish him twenty volumes of travels at $200,000.

“…Wonder how much some of our American literary men, who talk so much of the incapacity of the colored man, could get for a volume of their travels?”
