Summary, etc.:
"This biography highlights the life of Father Boniface Hardin, a Benedictine monk who was a noted social activist and founder of Martin University, the only predominately African American institution of higher learning in Indiana. Father Hardin fought injustice in Indianapolis during the turbulent 1960s and beyond, and founded an innovative university. Although Father Hardin was widely known in Indiana during his lifetime, it is important to document his life and work for posterity. Father Hardin died in 2012, and this volume will provide an overview of his story and lay the foundation for other scholarly efforts."-- Provided by publisher.
