Albert B. Cleage, Jr.: Correspondence, Biographical, Sermons, and Writings [series]

The Albert B. Cleage, Jr.: Correspondence, Biographical, Sermons, and Writings series documents Cleage importance as a clergyman and as a leader locally within Detroit's African American community and nationally as a spokesman for Black pride. The correspondence file spans the years 1954 to 1978 and details Cleage's interactions with both religious and civil rights leaders across the country, as well as within Detroit. This series also includes sermons from the early 1950's through 1983, giving a detailed look at Cleage's views and thoughts. Finally, there are manuscripts of Cleage's two books Black Messiah and Black Christian Nationalism, along with a third, unpublished work, Nothing Is More Sacred Than the Liberation of the Black People.
