Led On! Step by Step is the fascinating memoir of Reverend A. Toomer Porter (1828-1902), a pioneering and remarkable figure who lived through the dark days of the American Civil War in Southern Carolina. Born into a wealthy plantation family, Porter sold his plantation and his slaves, insisting that enslaved families be allowed to stay together. He was a radical and revolutionary man who campaigned tirelessly for equality, unity and acceptance in a time of fierce prejudice and oppression.
In 1854 Porter entered the Episcopal Ministry, having felt a religious calling from a young age. He went on to campaign for the education of the children of slaves and poor white children – driving the fight to maintain the local orphanage in his parish and ensuring schools offered stability and hope for those who needed them the most.
He was intensely vocal in his criticism of prejudice and was one of the rare white champions of reform both during and after the War in the South.
His story reveals a painfully acute awareness of the challenges faced by the communities he championed, heightened by the cruel opposition he faced from those who would rather see cities burn than advocate equal rights.
Praise for Led On! Step by Step:
“This crucial memoir describes important events and people often ignored in histories of Reconstruction in the South. During a period of political battles and violent confrontations, Rev. Porter worked tirelessly to build a society of educated people who could respect each other even when they disagreed. His vision of a community that could raise itself economically and spiritually was far ahead of his time, and exactly what the South needed—and still does." Faye Jensen, Executive Director, South Carolina Historical Society
Reverend Anthony Toomer Porter was born in 1828 to a wealthy plantation and slave-owning family. He sold this inheritance in order to become a clergyman and help the poor and disenfranchised in his community. The death of his 11-year old son, John Toomer Porter, in 1864 inspired Porter to begin his life’s work: the care and education of children orphaned or left destitute by the Civil War.
