Alexander Crummell, 1819-1898, was born in New York City, received his bachelor's degree from Cambridge University in England, worked as a missionary to Liberia, West Africa from 1853 to 1873, and returned to the United States where he worked as an advocate of separate black cultural development until his death. This study will treat both .directly and indirectly upon many of the problems and pitfalls of elitist reform in the U.S., Africa and elsewhere.
