Description

In this definitive biography, historian Leroy Davis examines the conflict inherent in John Hope's attempt to balance his joint roles as college president and national leader. The story of Hope's life illuminates many complexities that vexed African American leaders in a free but segregated society and created what Mordecai Johnson, Howard University's first African American president, called a "clashing of the soul."
