George E. Taylor, 1904 National Negro Liberty Party Presidential Candidate
In 1892, Mr. George E. Taylor was positioned as an Independent Republican. He, along with Frederick Douglass and Charles Ferguson carried recommendations from Black Independent Republicans to the Platform Committee of the National Republican Party. That committee rejected ALL of their recommendations. Mr. Taylor’s 1904 campaign was unsuccessful. The National Negro Liberty’s promise to put 300 speakers on the stump supporting his candidacy did not materialize.
