Essays in Afro-American History.

A collection of essays


A collection of essays describing the African-American experience from 18th to early 20th century America: “The first two essays deal with fugitive slaves resisting re-enslavement and include a previously unpublished letter on the subject by the eloquent pseudonymous black writer Cato. The next two examine the struggles of free blacks to end discrimination on Philadelphia streetcars. Each illuminate our understanding of white racism at the time and supports the view that the black experience has been unlike that of any other ethnic group in America.” Other essays include blacks at the Philadelphia Centennial; the beginnings of black labor movements in Pennsylvania; the pioneer black socialist Peter H. Clark; and California black socialist, Reverend George Washington Woodbey.
