Description

An anthology of five of the best autobiographical narratives detailing black life in New England in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The volume is accompanied by Cottrol's introduction, which discusses their significance and the window that they open on the lives of black New Englanders as they moved from eighteenth century slavery to freedom and the struggle for equality in the nineteenth century.
