Encyclopedia article about E. K. Love, minister, missionary, and a prominent Baptist leader and writer in nineteenth-century Georgia. Dedicated to fighting racism, Love was also a political activist whose efforts in Savannah foreshadowed the civil rights movement. He attended the Augusta Institute (later Morehouse College) and served as pastor of a number of churches, including the historic First African Baptist Church in Savannah from 1885 to 1900. King headed the black Georgia Baptist State Convention, the Baptist Foreign Mission Convention (in 1889, 1890, 1891, and 1893), and the National Baptist Convention.
