About this Item

A postcard expressing warm feelings from Marseille, France covered with Thurman's small but readable handwriting written to Henry Moon. It talks about the pleasure of seeing Moon, the travel plans of she and her husband and asks Moon to send her material on travel in Mexico. The card probably relates to the famous trip of a group of Black intellectuals to Russia and other places in the 1930s. Sue Bailey Thurman was the wife of Howard Thurman (the prominent Black theologian, academic and religious writer) and a writer and a well-known activist, writer and thinker in her own right. She refers to Howard in the post card twice. This is quite a rare and unusual find that reveals the relationships and interactions among the Black intellectuals and activists in the 30s who were active in America but who also traveled and had international interests.
