|Creator:||Newman, I. DeQuincey (Isaiah DeQuincey), 1911-1985|
|Title:||Speech, On the need for clergy to make full use of their position|
Three pages of a typewritten speech that emphasizes the importance of civic and religious leaders to use the powers at their disposal to effect social change. The speech begins with a tribute to the influence of African American educator Dr. Benjamin Mays, cites the Biblical text Luke 19:2, and refers to a statement of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on committing to service in word and deed. The speech asserts that to turn one's back on the responsibilities of assisting one's community is to fail God and the teachings of Jesus Christ.
