T HE P OST -R ECONSTRUCTION P ERIOD : 1877 - 1900 Rev. M. Edward Bryant (citizen of Selma, Alabama) "How Shall We Get Our Rights?" December 4, 1887 He spoke of the unity of all Black people of the United States and the building of black economic and political power. He spoke of the need for unity of the oppressed people, regardless of color, against their exploiters. And also, He supported the labor union. "I do not advocate force. The logic of Peace should be exhausted before any appeal is made to force. But we should have an intelligent understanding of what are our rights, and then we should have the courage to maintain and defend those rights. We should contend for our rights on every ground and protect them against outrage. Then man or the party who attempts to abridge our rights, crush our manhood and womanhood because of our color, must be looked upon as robbers, villains, usurpers and tyrants."
