The Geography of Hope: Black Exodus from the South after Reconstructionby Jim Haskins, James Haskins
Lured by the promise of freedom and free land in return for establishing homesteads, large groups of blacks left the former Confederate States in the 1870s and headed west to Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. This book draws on the rich resources of the period to establish the atmosphere and immediacy of their experiences as frontiersmen and farmers.
