The Burden Which the White Man Laid Down

When Darling drew this cartoon in 1915, most Americans thought that the end of slavery marked the end of their obligation to citizens of African American descent. "Ding" recognized that despite their newly legislated status, black people did not yet have equal opportunity. He urged progress in social status as well as legal status.
