Volume 5 continues the series by Dr. Andre Johnson as he recovers the lost voice within African American History of Henry McNeal Turner one of the most prolific writers and speakers during his time. Post-reconstruction in the United States and Turner's election as the bishop in the A.M.E. Church gave him an important platform from which he shared his views. The letters and correspondence cover the period August 1883- March 1892.
