St. Peter Claver

Saint Peter Claver (Spanish: San Pedro Claver Corberó) (26 June 1581 – 8 September 1654) was a Jesuit who, due to his life and work, became the patron saint of slaves, of Colombia and of African Americans. He was beatified 16 July, 1850, Pius IX, and canonized 15 January, 1888, by Leo XIII. His feast is celebrated on the ninth of September.
