Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n Negro A black man; specifically, one of a race of men characterized by a black skin and hair of a woolly or crisp nature. Negroes are distinguished from the other races by various other peculiarities—such as the projection of the visage in advance of the forehead; the prolongation of the upper and lower jaws; tile small facial angle; the flatness of the forehead and of the hinder part of the head; the short, broad, and flat nose; and the thick projecting lips. The negro race is generally regarded as comprehending the native inhabitants of Sudan, Senegambia, and the region southward to the vicinity of the equator and the great lakes, and their descendants in America and elsewhere; in a wider sense it is used to comprise also many other tribes further south, as the Zulus and Kafirs. The word negro is often loosely applied to other dark or black-skinned races, and to mixed breeds. As designating a “race,” it is sometimes written with a capital.
    • Negro Of, pertaining to, or characteristic of black men or negroes: as, negro blood; negro dances.

In poetry:

To be a Negro in a day like this
Demands rare patience--patience that can wait
In utter darkness. 'Tis the path to miss,
And knock, unheeded, at an iron gate,
To be a Negro in a day like this.
"At The Closed Gate Of Justice" by James David Corrothers

To test your worth of racial character;

The time is now for you to do and then to dare.

"At The Closed Gate Of Justice" by James David Corrothers

Of the still spring, upon whose brink

And bow my parching lips to drink.

I bless thee for this quiet ray!

The little wand'ring Negro-boy!
