Product Description

The history of Lutheran engagement in the Black context in the United States is regrettably thin. A Rumor of Black Lutherans helps Lutherans in the US and other students of American history assemble a complete account of the role of early American Lutherans in higher education among African Americans.

This book does so by tracing the stories of four remarkable African Americans from their encounters with Lutherans through to the powerful and impactful lives of ministry and service they went on to lead.

Diverse in place, time, and work, these four mini biographies paint a richly unified portrait of the ways Lutherans supported African Americans in higher-educational pursuits.
