Born into slavery in 1852, William Sanders Scarborough went on to become the first professional classicist of African American descent and the president of Wilberforce U. in Ohio. This first collection of his published works spans a half century from the end of Reconstruction through WWI and the rise of Jim Crow and includes speeches, book reviews, travel narratives, opinion pieces, philological papers, and more. Editor Michele Valerie Ronnick (classics, Greek, and Latin, Wayne State U.) provides background information on Scarborough's life and scholarship in the introduction.
