Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Focusing on free blacks in New York City from the state's General Emancipation--also the year of the first New York newspaper edited by an Afro-American--until the beginning of the Civil War, describes how a proscribed and persecuted group of people managed to survive and build a community that sought to achieve, if not for themselves, then at least for their children, the basic rights and dignities white Americans enjoyed. Walker (history, George Mason U.) has held Woodrow Wilson, Columbia University, and Ford Foundation Fellowships. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
