Throwing Their Hats into the Ring, Part 2 - Hiram Revels
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Hiram Rhoades Revels was a black man willing to take on the responsibilities which came with freedom. He was from the South. He had seen first hand the type of lives slaves had led. He was a free black who knew the importance of educating slaves.
 
2     Hiram was born somewhere in North Carolina. No one knows for sure where. He was born in 1822. He was part African and part Indian. Both his parents were free. At age sixteen, Hiram was apprenticed to his brother. He was to learn the barbering trade in his brother's shop. His brother died before his apprenticeship was complete. Hiram had to manage the shop when he was only 19 years old.
 
3     Hiram decided he did not want to spend his life in the barber shop. He left North Carolina and studied at a Quaker school in Indiana. After graduating, he went to Ohio and entered Knox College. He studied religion and was ordained as a minister in the African Methodist Church. Revels began ministering to people all over the central part of the United States. He traveled from state to state teaching the Bible. When he tired of traveling, he settled in Baltimore, Maryland. There he became the principal of a school for black children and the pastor of a church.
