“I am not in favor of caste, nor a separation of the brotherhood of mankind, and would as willingly live among white men as black, if I had an equal possession and enjoyment of privileges.”- Martin R Delany
Born on May 6, 1812 in the state of Virginia, Martin Delany; the son of an enslaved father and free mother was destined to be “first” more than once in his lifetime. Delany was the first “black Nationalist”, also one of the first three black students enrolled at Harvard University Medical School. Regardless of the fact that he had to exit prematurely due to racism, he was still able to play a pivotal/ essential role in the “cholera outbreak” of 1854. Martin Delany was the first man of color to hold an officer position in the US Army.
Delany became an advocate for equal rights for African-Americans in the Northern States.
