George Washington and the Negro.


Examination of George Washington as a slaveholding Virginia planter, Revolutionary War general, and U.S. president, issued by noted African American publishing house, The Associated Publishers. “Those biographies of Washington in which the words ‘Negroes’ and ‘Slaves’ do not appear even in the index distort him. ...for the peak of his nobility of character, gauged only by the summit to which he ascended, loses much of its height unless measured from the depths of the valley from which he climbed.” (Introduction)
