About this Item

466p., first Mnemosyne reprint of 1891 edition in publisher's original cloth. Ex libris, with three unobtrusive withdrawn stamps. Crummell, 1819-1898, was among the intellectual titans of 19th century Black America. A ratinalist theologian and militant abolitionist, he converted to an emigrationist position during the height of the antislavery controversy of the 1840s, and himself took up residence in Liberia for many years. During his Liberian tenure and after his return, he became one of the leading systematizers of the Black intellectual experience in America, influencing such disparate figures as W. E. B. Du Bois and Kelly Miller in the process. Like Miller (and Miller's mentor, Booker T. Washington), Crummell believed in education as the vehicle of Black redemption; like Du Bois, he believed in a carefully cultivated educated Black leadership that clearly influenced Du Bois' notion of the 'talented tenth'. The papers in this volume cover a wide range of Crummell's life and thought, from his early career through his African experience into his mature proto-Pan Africanism. Bookseller Inventory # 74669
