Published and unpublished writings, 1939-1999
Boxes 72-90

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of writings primarily by Sullivan from the 1939-1999. The series contains drafts and published copies of articles, books, interviews, sermons, songs and prayers, speeches, and writings by others. Sullivan's writings include multiple drafts and notes. When identifiable, these notes have been kept with the finished and published versions of his writings.

Sullivan's articles (1969-1995) address black advancement, the Sullivan Principles, and concerns of various organizations with which he was involved. The books section contains notes, drafts, and proofs of his books. Interviews (1971-1992), the smallest section, contains transcripts and clippings of interviews of Sullivan in magazines, on talk shows, and to various organizations. Prayers, poetry, and religious songs composed by Sullivan form another small section. Sermons and speeches comprise the largest part of the series. Nearly all sermons were delivered at Zion Baptist Church (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) during Sullivan's tenure as minister (1950-1988). The sermons frequently combine religious lessons with calls for social and political activism, both in the black community at home and in Sub-Saharan and South African communities. Sullivan often wrote several versions of the same speech, sometimes changing its name. Different versions are kept in the same folder and are cross-listed by title. Speeches (1967-1999) were given at board meetings, commencement ceremonies, Opportunities Industrialization Centers events, and upon receipt of awards and honorary degrees. Some speeches are also Congressional testimony.

This series also includes writings by others (1971-1994), which include drafts of speeches, articles, sermons, and Congressional testimony by various individuals involved with Sullivan.
