The Substance of Things Hoped For: A Memoir of African-American Faithby Samuel DeWitt Proctor
The Pastor Emeritus of the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem reflects on faith's role in his own life and in the African-American experience. Dr. Proctor chronicles his family's journey--from his grandmother's slavery through the monumental victories of the NAACP to his own involvement in the King Oasis and through subsequent presidential eras--to show the common thread in the lives of millions of African Americans: pure enduring faith.
