An African American Pastor Before and During the American Civil War Volume 1: The Literary Archive of Henry Mc Neal Turner, 1880-1892
|Author: ||Turner, Henry|
Henry McNeal Turner (1834-1915) was one of America’s earliest black activists and social reformers. This book recovers a lost voice within American and African American rhetorical history.
“Dr. Andre Johnson’s scholarship on the life, work, and writings of Henry McNeal Turner recovers an incredibly important aspect of African American history. It is always an important occasion when a scholar goes beyond the study of well-known historical figures to re-introduce a leader who lived beyond the limits of current life memories, and whose efforts paved the way for current benefits. ”
