Explorations in Black Leadership

Co-Directed by Phyllis Leffler & Julian Bond

Sinquefield, Richard Anderson (1825–1910)

Rev. Richard Sinquefield published a record of his 42 years of work as an itinerant preacher in the AME Church of West Arkansas in 1909. He acquired his education while a slave, and served the abolition movement after his escape. He and his peers challenged societal notions that African Americans could not learn, working toward emancipation and education for all.
