Description

This work draws on research in archives in England and the United States to examine Alexander Crummell, generally regarded as the leading black intellectual of the 19th-century. It charts Crummell's career as a writer, teacher, orator, and minister and explores his relationships with such persons as E. W. Blyden, John Edward Bruce, and W. E. B. DuBois. Particular attention is paid to Crummell's work as a missionary with the Protestant Episcopal Church in West Africa. His role in the creation of a national (Episcopal) church in Liberia is also explored
