AFRICANGLOBE - The name Martin R. Delany (pictured) may not ring in the minds of many Black Americans; however, the American Civil War veteran, abolitionist, writer, and explorer is often said to be America’s first supporter of Black Nationalism. Delany lived a long and fruitful life, passing at the age of 72 on this day in 1885. Today we take a look back to honor this amazing Black pioneer.
