Paschal Beverly Randolph (1825 1875) was a mixed-race doctor, occultist, spiritualist, and writer. He was probably the first person to introduce the principles of "sex magic" to North America and established the earliest known Rosicrucian order in the United States. This, his most comprehensive work on occult philosophy, explains the process of "blending" or channelling "disincarnate" entities. During his colourful career, he served on the National Convention of Colored Men, recruited black soldiers for the Union Army, set up a school for black adults in New Orleans, and was received at the White House by President Andrew Johnson. Nevertheless, his occult leanings made him unpopular and misunderstood by both the white and black communities.
