A clergyman, missionary, scholar, and teacher, Alexander Crummell (1819-1898) became recognized as the senior African-American priest in the Episcopal church, and his eloquent writings were among the first, if not the first, scholarly works in aid of African-American advancement. This important collection brings together Crummel's letters and sermons.
Born a free black in New York City, Crummell graduated in 1839 from Oneida Institute and was ordained in Philadelphia in 1844. Between 1848 and 1853, he studied in England; he next traveled to Liberia as a missionary for the Episcopal church. He returned to the United States in 1872, and thereafter he taught at Howard University, founded the American Negro Academy, and authored such substantial volumes as Africa and America (1891).
