From Wikipedia:

"Francis James Grimké (October 10, 1850[1] – October 11, 1937) was an American Presbyterian minister in Washington, DC who was prominent in working for equal rights for African Americans. He was active in the Niagara Movement and helped found the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909."

From Thabiti Anyabwile's section on Grimke in his book "The Faithful Preacher":

"While at Howard University, Grimké felt called to the Christian ministry. He left Howard in 1874 to pursue theological education at Princeton Theological Seminary under the leadership of Charles Hodge. At Princeton, Francis received a thoroughly Reformed understanding of the Christian faith grounded in a high view of the inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of the Scriptures."

"Grimké fought hard to maintain a gospel focus in all his ministerial endeavors and to apply that focus to the major social issues of his day. It seems to have always been the case that pastors are asked to represent every social concern their congregations and communities deem important. Grimké offers us one model for preserving and emphasizing the primary calling of preaching the gospel with Christ-centered activism in important social concerns."
