Come Find Out Sunday.


There is no way to really know but  According to Master Scholar Dr. Molefi Assante, below is what he said to the Mayor of Pittsburgh regarding police and others trying to enforce the fugitive slave act in  his home:

Delany said:  “Honorable mayor, whatever ideas of liberty I may have I have received from reading the lives of your revolutionary fathers. And one of those ideas is that a man may defend his castle with his life, even to the taking of life.  Sir, my house is my castle and in it dwell none but my wife and my children free as the angels in heaven and with a liberty as sacred as the pillars of God. If any man shall enter that house in search of a slave, be he constable, sheriff or magistrate, or let it be he who sanctioned this act into law, (President Millard Fillmore), with his cabinet as his body guard, the declaration of independence dangling above his head as his banner, and the Constitution of his country on his breast as his shield, if he shall enter the threshold of my house and I do not lay him a lifeless corpse at my feet may the grave refuse my body a resting place and righteous heaven my spirit a home. No he cannot enter that house and we both live.”
