Title

Article "Literary Societies Have 'Open Night'"

Description

The article discusses a joint meeting between two literary societies, The Philologian and Mu Sigma Rho Society. During the joing meeting, a University vistor by the name of Miss Dudley, gave an "old fashioned negro sermon, which visualized the negro person we have heard back at home." The act of white people imitating black sermons highlights the racial divide between the white and black people.
