An outstanding copy
From the Dedication, in part: “To My Wife, Alyse. This is the book you help me to do,—the one that the white publishers would not issue. That is because this is of the people that the white rulers are slow to free. But free them they must…”
The illustrated dust jacket shows Harriet Tubman, rifle at her side, pointing and leading the way to her people from enslavement to freedom. Carter G. Woodson, founder of Associated Publishers and “Father of Black History” published inspirational and educational works such as Harriet Tubman for young and adult black Americans.
An excellent copy.
