Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alexander Crummell (March 3, 1819, New York City, September 10, 1898, Red Bank, New Jersey) was a pioneering African pastor, professor and African nationalist. Born to a former slave, Boston Crummell, and freeborn Charity Hicks, Alexander Crummell was seemingly destined to become an abolitionist. According to Crummell's own account, his paternal grandfather was an ethnic Temne born in Sierra Leone, and was captured into slavery when he was around 13 years old. Both parents were active abolitionists, and the first African American newspaper, Freedom's Journal, was published within their home. Boston Crummell also instilled in his son a sense of unity with those blacks still living in Africa. His parents' influence and these early experiences within the abolitionist movement shaped Crummell's values, beliefs, and actions throughout the rest of his life. For example, even as a boy in New York, Crummell worked for the American Anti-Slavery Society.show more
