Abstract :

Dr. Martin Robison Delany is honored not solely for his achievements in more than a dozen varying fields, including medicine, dentistry, science and philosophy, but for his lifelong commitment to the upliftment of black people. Delany recognized African American liberation would not be obtained if men struggled apart from women and put his commitment into action by supporting white feminists and giving black women voting power during the National Convention of Colored Freemen.
