Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Has excellent chapters to use regarding slave culture and community... Goes a long way in building a base in understanding the uniqueness of the Black experience in America."—Russell Wigginton, University of Illinois

"This is probably the best introduction to American slavery available, perfectly suited to undergraduates, and indispensable to anyone interested in the subject."—Joseph Urgo, Bryant College

"Students find the material very helpful in focusing on the differences between the cultural life of the slave labor system and that of the northern labor system, as ably presented in Sean Wilentz's Chants Democratic."—Wayne Cutler, University of Tennessee

"My students always find this a fascinating introduction to the institution of slavery in the U.S. It spurs much discussion."—Nemata Blyden, University of Texas, Dallas

"Excellent."—Katherine Barber Fromm, Iowa State University

"An excellent and thorough study. The most useful volume available as a college text giving a 'black perspective' on the slave experience."—Robert F. Engs, University of Pennsylvania

"It is doubly welcome, both for its intrinsic worth in describing slavery as it must have been for those inside and for its meaning and scholarship....A book all American historians could read with profit."—The Journal of American History

    A sad history

    I've read this book while in college and it tells a sad story in American history. Yet, it must be told and retold when necessary. Be prepared to cry, laugh, and become angry. Challenge yourself and redirect negative energy into something more positive.

    Highly Recommended

    Antwone Fisher wrote his autobio that became a hit move by the title " Antwone Fisher ". Denzel Washington was the director of that movie who posed as a Naval Psychiatrist, Dr. Davenport, providing therapy for Antwone, a very disturbed young black. During the therapy sessions, Washington gives Antwone a copy of " The Slave Community " to help him understand the inertia in American black communities that continues the mind-set of slavery that is passed down from generation to generation, and continues to enslave black communities.
