Confronted by an imperial agenda of industrial nations at the turn of the century that had far reaching political, racial, and religious implications, many of the men and women of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church developed a foreign agenda toward Asia that sought to maintain the sovereignty of China and highlight the racial competency of Japan. They also attempted to use issues and events in Asia such as the Sino-Japanese War, the Boxer Uprising, and the Russo-Japanese War to expose American racism and to gobalize issues of racial oppression. In doing so, they developed a political rhetoric that expressed the need for universal human rights and emphasized self-determination and equality for oppressed people at home and abroad.
