Item description for From Slave Cabin to Pulpit by D. Sporer Peter Randolph Paul...
Although much has been written about the peculiar institution of slavery, questions still remain about this manifestly cruel system. How could such brutality be tolerated by a modern, civilized society? Perhaps even more importantly, how could the victims cope with the numerous physical and spiritual challenges? Out of print for over 100 years, FROM SLAVE CABIN TO PULPIT shows the power of faith, of how one man, Peter Randolph, born into miserable poverty and ignorance, after an almost miraculous release from slavery, attained a position of respect and authority in white society. Reminiscent of Frederick Douglass' own narrative, this work provides a carefully written, detailed, and fair portrayal of life in slavery, and the life after it for those fortunate enough to have survived. Randolph traces his growth from illiterate laborer to church minister, all the while unselfishly pointing out that his progress was made largely possible by the care and understanding of people uncontaminated by the sins of the age. He also praises the men and women who helped destroy slavery, but notes that racism still had to be eliminated. Despite his savage mistreatment, he does not seek revenge, nor does he see former slave-holders as beyond redemption.
