Alain Locke: Faith and Philosophy
Studies in the Babi and Baha’i Religions, Volume 18
Kalimát Press, First Edition.
One of the towering figures of African American history is Alain Locke–first black Rhodes Scholar, Harvard Ph.D., professor at Howard University, dean of the Harlem Renaissance. Many books have been written about his contributions to black art and culture in the United States.
These books have generally ignored the fact that Locke was a Baha’i. This book fills in that missing link, telling the story of Locke’s services to the Cause from 1918 until his death in 1954.
