Collection Description

Biographical Note

Terry Lee Matthews (1953-), a Methodist pastor and adjunct professor of Methodist theology, conducted his dissertation research on Andrew Sledd and the Sledd Affair. Matthews received his undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University, obtained a Master of Divinity from the Divinity School of Duke University, and earned a Ph.D. in Church History and Theology from Duke University. In 2002 Matthews gave the keynote speech at the Emory Symposium "Professing Justice: A Symposium on the Civil Rights Legacy of Professor Andrew Sledd," and, in 2003, published the article "The Voice of a Prophet: Andrew Sledd Revisited" in the Journal of Southern Religion.

Andrew Sledd (1870-1939) was a faculty member at Emory College, 1898-1902, and at the Candler School of Theology, 1914-1939. In 1902, Sledd authored an article entitled "The Negro: Another View," which criticized the white South's treatment of African Americans, speaking out against lynchings. Controversy arose and the Board of Trustees of Emory College encouraged President James Dickey to fire Sledd. In 1914, Sledd rejoined the faculty of the Candler School of Theology at Emory University.
