John Hope Franklin's classic study of the African American experience in North Carolina.


An admirable piece of work. . . . This book gives a fairly complete picture of the plight of the North Carolina free people of color.--Commonweal

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i am about to write a biography of my paternal ancestors who come from North Carolina. My apical NC ancestor lived from about 1799 to 1857 (the period covered by this book), and he was a free person of color (who owned his own business), but he was born a slave. I can hardly begin to tell you how much I learned about him and his descendants as a result of reading this well researched and documented book. It is written clearly, and I could hardly bear to put it down.

I definitely recommend this book!
