Jubilee history:(from,www.memphiskemetjubilee.com/history) "Memphis and various social organizations celebrated its success in the cotton industry during the early 1900s. In March 1934, Dr. R.Q. Venson, then a dentist on Beale Street, took his wife's nephew to view the Cotton Carnival Parade. When his nephew pointed out that . . . the Negroes were horses, Dr. Venson decided to request that Negroes be allowed to participate fully in the parade. His request was not taken seriously during this time of segregation, and he was challenged to organize a Negro festival. Dr. Venson knew that Memphis' celebration of the cotton industry needed to be more. If it were not for the contributions of African slaves and later contributions of African Americans, the cotton industry could not have become the success it was then, and as we know it today.

Title: Remarks by the President of Fisk University, The Flag
Associated name : F. A. McKenzie
Attributed name : Fisk University
Printer : Williams Company of Nashville, Tennessee
Date Created: 1915-09-22
Abstract: 3 tifs. A three page brochure issued at an event where Fisk college raised the flag over Jubilee Hall on September 22, 1915. The flag raising and speech was to "mark the opening of the New Year and the Anniversary of the Preliminary Announcement by Lincoln of the Freeing of the Slave, September 22, 1862." The page was signed by Dr. F.A. Mc Kenzie. The first page features a black and white image of one of the college`s buildings flying a flag and featuring a tall tree in front. The second page is in praise of the flag and its symbolism, with two images of the college. The page reads in part, "The Flag represents in its aspects of patriotism, of national devotion, two great ideas, two great facts. The first great idea, the first great fact, is that of Obedience. . . . The second great idea, the second great fact, is that of Perfection. . . . When we are true to our flag we are true to that kingdom whose law is, Be ye therefore perfect." The third page text aligns Lincoln with the flag, stating "The flag of Lincoln is the flag of the South, and the flag of the North, the flag of the white and the flag of the black. It is the flag under whose folds no slave can breathe. . . . The flag and freedom and education are inseparable."

Title: George A. Barrows in Seattle, Washington to Lewis
Author : George A. Barrows
Date Created: 1901-06-16
Abstract: 6 tifs. A letter written by George A. Barrows to Lewis (perhaps Coleman) in Seattle, Washington dated June 16, 1901. The letter details the sea voyages and travels of Barrows at the turn of the century. Five images are the letter, and the sixth image states "Martin Fallers, Laura MacDonald, Mary Hines, Cummings, said to --- back Tuesday WEEK." The letter reads: Dear Lewis: Many thanks for your long and very interesting letter. I am very glad the news personal to yourself is so good. A man of family, of position and of aldermanic proportions, you are certainly in luck. May all sorts of good fortune continue. I hardly know how to start to tell you of my very eventful career during the last few years. I have not time now to write a book, so will send you my diaries of `98 and `99 wherein you will see among other things how I was twice [2] wrecked at sea, on one occasion being cast away on an island in Behring [sic] Sea. As soon as I stopped keeping a diary I stopped getting ship wrecked. Least summer I was Ship Surgeon on a large Steamship--the "Oregon"--running between Seattle and Cape Nome. A great deal happened then but I have no record of it and it would take too long to tell. Since last Fall I have been teaching Obstetrics and Diagnosis of diseases in an Institute here; but this job is now over - for the summer vacation - and we are "up against it" again almost as badly as when we struck Seattle. I hoped to get the "Oregon" again [3] this summer - but a doctor who is a great friend of the owner has thus far euchered [sic] me out of it. You see I am as far off as ever from my "Four Million," although the experience I have had may sometime help me to get it. I know Alaska pretty well and how they work the ropes there, very well. The country is full of gold and if we are ever so fixed that we could get there - with the means to stay a year or two - I believe the "Four" would be on the way. One must winter there in order to get a chance at new diggings before news of them reaches the States. Before [4] the rush of people to Nome got there every valuable claim had been taken up by men who had wintered up the Yukon. People who are not Capitalists who go in for the summer, invariably, are sorry -- others too, for that matter, who lack necessary knowledge and judgment. This is a great country out here. You ought to take a long vacation sometime and come out and see what God`s country really is like. Magnificent scenery and climate, living cheap, things civilized and a bracing move and get-up to affairs that would make the effete East [5] hold its breath. Let me hear from you soon. No hurry about returning the diaries. Your sincere friend Geo. A. Barrows. 16 June 1901.
