American Prejudice and Southern Religion
On the evening of 4 November 1841, members of the Plymouth County Anti-Slavery Society, together with "New England freemen" and at least one "southern gentleman," reassembled at the church in Hingham, Massachusetts, to consider resolutions postponed during their afternoon session. Urging the audience to support a resolution condemning racial prejudice, Edmund Quincy argued that this "unnatural prejudice, not implanted by God . . . will not cease while slavery lasts; for men always hate those whom they injure."
