From the PublisherThis book is an impressive and significant contribution to southern history.
Southern Cultures "An excellent monograph to use in a U.S. history survey or in a seminar on the American South."—###Southern Economic Journal# "Sets a splendid example for future studies. . . . Throughout this story, African Americans' struggle to build their own world with the materials available to them shines through clearly. Reidy has told their story simply and well."—###Journal of the Early Republic#
Reidy has produced one of the most thoughtful treatments to date of a critical moment in southern history.

Necessary reading for all concerned with southern and African-American history.
