Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Uniquely inclusive, African Americans in the Nineteenth Century: People and PerspectiveS≪/i> offers a wealth of insights into the way African Americans lived and how slave-era experiences affected their lives afterward. Coverage goes beyond well-known figures to focus on the lives of African American men, women, and children across the nation, battling the oppression and prejudice that didn't stop with emancipation while they tried to establish their place as Americans.

The book ranges from the African origins of African American communities to coverage of slave communities, female slaves, slave-slave holder relations, and freed persons. Additional chapters look at African Americans in the Civil War, Reconstruction, and Jim Crow eras. An alphabetically organized "mini-encyclopedia," plus additional information sources round out this eye-opening work of social history.

Book News Annotation:

Scholars of history and literature examine African American society and how it intersected with that of other groups during the century divided by the abolition of legal slavery. Among their topics are African and African Americans to the 1820s, an intricate look at black female slaves, uncovering the true relationship between masters and slaves, African Americans make the Civil War a struggle for freedom, African American responses to early Jim Crow, agriculture, The West, Black Indians as America's forgotten people, and African American leaders.
