Author Info
Wilma King
Wilma King has taught history at Michigan State University and served as the editor of "A Northern Woman in the Plantation South: Letters of Tryphena Blanche Holder Fox, 1856-1876".
"...a movingly written, carefully documented work. King's provocative thesis concerning the deliberate and long-lasting race and caste-linked theft of childhood in the antebellum United States should give us pause and encourage us to think more deeply about the heritage of abuse and deprivation and its effects through many generations."
"More than simply a window into the world of younger slaves, 'Stolen Childhood' offers an informed and moving narrative that assists us in understanding the people and the system that shaped many of the social patterns in American life."
