Great Moments in International Ethiopianism
— On this date on August 8, 1906 the Montreal Gazette reported that a “small party of African American preachers who have “been advocating the Ethiopian propaganda “Africa for Africans” should be deported from South Africa.”
It continues: “The Government has not yet taken any action and it is a question whether it will. The agitation against the preachers has been revived by the recent trouble at Cape Town, for which they are held by certain London papers to be partially responsible. They have made no secret of their mission to South Africa, advising the natives to use their efforts to secure black supremacy in that part of the world”.
