DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE
In 1893 James Edson White, the son of Ellen White, acquired a copy of his
mother’s 1891 speech “Our Duty to Colored People.” Convicted by the call to missions
in the South he gave up his business ventures in the North and put his full attention
towards reaching the Black South. By utilizing methods previously tested by earlier
workers in the South along with the counsel of his mother, Edson established a viable
missional strategy for Mississippi and eventually the entire region. In order to work around some of the difficulties in preaching to African Americans, with his own funds, he
had the river boat “Morning Star” constructed. This allowed Edson to hold meetings,
educational classes and when needed a viable means of escape. By 1895 Edson
became actively involved in the Southern Work

Ten Challenges for Adventist African-Americans
BY DELBERT W. BAKER
Challenge number five has been demonstrated for me even until the present.
5. Manage racial attitudes. Don't assume racism until you know it to be so. When confronted with racism, be committed to following the principles in Matthew 18. Be angry, but don't sin—do something about it. Remember that the secret of black survival as a people has always rested on spiritual. not secular, weapons.
