"James and Lois Horton have used superb scholarship to pierce the mists shrouding the first generation of blacks on these shores and have delivered a sharp portrait of some of the earliest and strongest Americans. This is a profound work of the utmost importance to anyone who wants to understand the United States and her people."
"A stunning achievement of research, insight, and an inclusive historical vision. The Hortons give us the free black experience from 1700 to the Civil War in what will become the standard, synthetic work on the subject. Told with an artful combination of irony, economy, and original description of people and events, this story of the origin and persistence of black communities richly demonstrates how much black history belongs in the central narrative of American history."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Spanning the 200 years and eight generations from the colonial slave trade to the Civil War, this marvelously peopled history introduces readers to a rich cast of characters who contributed to the politics, culture, and society of black America. The Hortons brilliantly illuminate the free black communities of the antebellum North as they struggled to reconcile conflicting cultural identities and to work for social change in an atmosphere of racial injustice.
