The speech commemorates the anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, KS Supreme Court decision, and the passage of the Fifteenth Amendment. Commemoration of the Emancipation Proclamation is added in margin notes. The speech quotes a passage from the Bible in which Joshua gives thanks, and also quotes James Russell Lowell. The speech warns that laurels should not be rested upon. The African American in the United States like a pilgrim, which according to the Hebrew definition is one who dwells in a place without the rights of a citizen. Advancements towards civil rights constitute a pilgrimage.
