Black Abolitionists, Book by Benjamin Quarles Chapter 9 Vigilance Committe
Noted historian, scholar, and educator Benjamin Author Quarles was born in Boston, Massachusetts on January 23, 1904.
A prolific writer, Quarles published ten books, twenty-three major articles, and hundreds of shorter pieces of various sorts. At least four of his books attained national significance: Frederick Douglass (1948), which grew out of his doctoral research and remains the authoritative source for most of what is known about Douglass; The Negro in the American Revolution (1961), one of the first books to demonstrate the importance of including African Americans in the mainstream narratives of U.S. history; The Negro in the Making of America (1964), a text used in courses throughout the country; and Black Abolitionists (1969), a book that helped propel a major reassessment of the anti-slavery movement.
David Ruggles advocated for self-defense and the need for African Americans to organize and establish their own "remedy" for justice. In 1835, Ruggles and other black abolitionists formed the Committee of Vigilance (A hybrid of The Black Panthers and The NAACP) to protect free blacks and recently escaped slaves and to fight slave catchers and kidnappers.
As David Ruggles, a leading black abolitionist, made clear in this 1836 account of a kidnapping, African Americans could not count on the police, the courts, or anti-slavery organizations.
Richard Riker (Rikers Island named after him) [1773-1842]
A lawyer and eventual judge who saw us on the lowest social level possible. Adipta writes, "When seven-year-old schoolboy Henry Scott was seized as a fugitive slave from his classroom, the kidnappers forcibly brought the terrified child before Richard Riker, the magistrate of New York City. They claimed that the boy was property belonging to white slaver.

James W. Dowe, Jr. was born in the Bronx, New York on June 7, 1948. Dowe is the second eldest child of Walter James and Lillian Dowe. He has an elder sister, two younger sisters and a younger brother.
The family lived in the Edenwald Houses in the northeast section of the Bronx. Dowe and his siblings formed a gospel group called the Dowe Singers. Later, they were joined by another gospel group, the Douglas Singers and became known as the Dowe-Douglas Singers.
During his years at Evander High School in the Bronx, New York, singing baritone lead vocals, Dowe and some of his school mates formed an R&B singing group, performing at local gigs. The personnel of the group continually changed; but, Dowe felt compelled to record his music and build a career in show business.
Dowe abandoned his music to pursue a career more befitting a husband and father as a New York City Firefighter. He and his late wife, Susan, had four children, a son, James W. Dowe, III, and three daughters, Adrienne, Joy and Monica, respectively. Having served the NYC Firefighters with distinction, he decided to retire and relocate with his family to North Carolina where he and his wife were called to ministry.
In 2004, Dowe lost his beloved wife to breast cancer. He was by her side as her caregiver and as he refers to it, “servant,” throughout her five years of struggle with this devastating disease.
