Booker T. Washingtons Atlanta Compromise Speech
A ship lost at sea for many days suddenly sighted
a friendly vessel. From the mast of the
unfortunate vessel was seen a signal Water,
water. We die of thirst. The answer from the
friendly vessel at once came back Cast down
your bucket where you are. A second time, the
signal, Water, send us water! went up from the
distressed vessel. And was answered Cast down
your bucket where you are. A third and fourth
signal for water was answered Cast down your
bucket where you are. The captain of the
distressed vessel, at last heeding the
injunction, cast down his bucket and it came up
full of fresh, sparkling water from the mouth of
the Amazon River. To those of my race who depend
on bettering their condition in a foreign land,
or who underestimate the importance of
preservating friendly relations with the southern
white man who is their next door neighbor, I
would say Cast down your bucket where you are.
Cast it down, making friends in every manly way
of the people of all races, by whom you are
