The Episcopal priest and Civil Rights activist signs this 4¼x2½ card
Autograph note signed: "To Merv Slotnick/Peace and love,/Malcolm Boyd" 4¼x2½. Malcolm Boyd (b. 1923) is an American Episcopal priest and author. Boyd was raised Episcopalian but after attending college in Colorado decided he was an atheist. In the 1940s Boyd moved to California and eventually formed a production company with Mary Pickford. At the same time, he found himself looking to the church for meaning. In 1951 Boyd began studying to become a priest at the Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, California and after graduating in 1954 and was ordained a deacon. In 1959 Boyd became Episcopal Chaplain at Colorado State University. In the 1960s, Boyd became known as "the Espresso Priest" for his religiously-themed poetry-reading sessions at the Hungry I nightclub in San Francisco, at the time of the San Francisco Renaissance poetry movement. Boyd went on to become a prominent white clergyman in the American Civil Rights Movement. He participated as one of the Freedom riders in 1961 and later attended an interfaith conference for racial integration in Chicago. Boyd was also active in the anti-Vietnam War movement, marching with Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. In 1977 Boyd came out of the closet, becoming the most prominent homosexual clergy person to come out. He is the author of over 30 books and writes for the Huffington Post. Toned. Corners rounded. Otherwise, fine condition.
