Editorial Reviews

Review

"Phillips tells an important story, not just in a historiographical sense, but also in human terms. Freedom's Port is essentially a story about a community that realizes its potential and strength, and uses them to ensure its very survival against great odds. Furthermore, Phillips hones the historiography of urban slavery and the antebellum free black experience by focusing in a very detailed and methodical way on one urban community." -- Laura Croghan Kamoie, H-Net Reviews

Format: Paperback
For the umpteenth time I am re-reading Freedom's Port: The African-American Community of Baltimore, 1790-1860. Christopher Phillips's 1997 tour de force should be on everyone's reading list. My particular interest this time is Chapter 4: Climbing Jacob's Ladder. It describes the formative years of leading black churches at the time when the City Hall vicinity was significantly African American. An amazing book.

This is the best book about free African Americans.These are interesting facts from the book.M*lattoes was a term for biracial people,light skin blacks and brown skin blacks.N*gro was a term for dark skin blacks.M*lattoes married m*lattoes and n*groes married n*groes in Baltimore.Both terms are now derogatory.Reverend Daniel Coker (is biracial) was forced to resign because some of the black delegation did not want Rev. Coker to be bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church because he was light skin.
