Susie McClure Library: The Harmon Wray Collection


Harmon Wray was an American activist and author, based in Tennessee, who supported human rights for the poor, abolition of the death penalty, and prison reform. He advocated that Christians had a moral obligation to try to keep people out of prison, and persisted with his efforts of reform during decades of rising rates of incarceration in the United States, especially of minorities. Upon his death, he donated a number of books to American Baptist College on subjects ranging from southern history to prison reform and social injustice.
