About this Item

Title
The relations and duties of free colored men in America to Africa : a letter to Charles B. Dunbar, M.D., Esq., of New York City
Summary
Crummell, pastor of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., from 1879 to 1898, spoke out for black liberation, and founded the Negro Academy. He addresses freed black Americans from Liberia. He does not favor a "return to Africa" movement, popular as it may be, but rather says African Americans should take up the challenges of Africa -- trade, commerce, and evangelization -- for which they are well-suited because of their African heritage and ties. He cites Liberia as an example of such an endeavor.
