On Two Hemispheres
Bits From The Life Story of Lewis G. Jordan
by Lewis Garnett Jordan, Cynthia D. Cooper (Foreword)

Lewis Garnett Jordan, the author of this insightful work, was born into slavery.

Like many slaves during that period of American history, he chose his name from those of three benefactors who had befriended and helped him. Out of those borrowed names came one of the best preachers and church builders the race has produced. In 1896, he became the third Executive Secretary of the Foreign Mission Board of Negro Baptist Churches, USA. He served for 26 years. He was a temperance advocate, which won him the respect of the American people, who nominated him for the United States Congress on the Prohibition ticket.

The present volume is a reissue of the original, published in 1936. L.G. Jordan's great-granddaughter Cynthia D. Cooper has now made On Two Hemispheres: Bits From The Life Story of Lewis G. Jordan available, with a new introduction and foreword, to readers for whom the realities of slavery, and this important milestone in American history, are fast becoming unfamiliar.
