Excerpt from Caleb, the Degenerate: A Play in Four Acts, a Study of the Types, Customs, and Needs of the American Negro

Ghis play has been in course of construction for some years. Sev eral of the speeches, Slightly changed and with suitable headings, have been published in periodicals and in my Links of Friendship, which will soon be out of print. I once published a short prose version of caleb in a Louisville journal.

Negroes of to-day do not speak in blank verse. The peoples of the past did not. An author puts poetry into the mouths of his characters to show the possibility of individual human expression as illustrated by himself.

The aim is to give a dramatic picture of the Negro as he is to-day. The brain and soul of the Negro are rising rapidly. On the other hand, there is more depravity among a certain class of Negroes than ever before. This is not due to anything innate. It is the result of unwise, depraved leadership and conditions growing out of it.

Rahab represents this unwise, depraved leadership. Caleb is his pupil, and represents the depraved class of Negroes referred to. Some may claim that the picture is overdrawn, but both leader and led are with us to-day and speak for themselves.
