Editorial Reviews

Review

?George Rawick's From Sundown to Sunup is by far the most successful recent book about slave culture. . . . As impressive as Rawick's analysis of slave life is his interpretation of American racism.?-Eric Foner, University Review

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Robert W. Kellemen on August 2, 2005
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"From Sundown to Sunup" by George P. Rawick is the introductory volume in Rawick's groundbreaking 19 volume (plus supplemental volumes) series which transcribes the slave narrative interviews made from 1936 to 1938. All volumes are available online at the Library of Congress.

In this introductory volume, Rawick uses the captivating title that harkens back to slave times. From sunup to sundown belonged to the "master." That's when work was done. But from sundown to sunup, belonged to the enslaved person.

Rawick brilliantly culls from narrative interviews the necessary information to conclude that even from sunup to sundown, the enslaved person's soul and mind never had to be enslaved--only his or her physical body. In interesting chapter after fascinating chapter, he shares slices of first hand accounts to weave together the story of how enslaved people united together to become a community.

Reviewer: Dr. Robert W. Kellemen is the author of "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction." He has also authored "Soul Physicians" and "Spiritual Friends."

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Harry Cleaver on August 7, 2014
Format: Paperback
I was recently reminded, by Bruno Cartosio who wrote the introduction to the Italian translation of this book - LO SCHIAVO AMERICANO DAL TRAMONTO ALL'ALBA, Feltrinelli, Milano: Feltrinelli, 1973 - that this great work may well have had more readers in Italy than in the U.S. Like Joel Chandler Harris' collection UNCLE REMUS that tells children's stories of how small, physically weak Brer Rabbit repeatedly outsmarts bigger, stronger predators, so does FROM SUNDOWN TO SUNUP tell adult stories about how those physically enslaved struggled and often outwitted their "masters". These stories - based on massive first-person testimony - have been inspiring those struggling against exploitation and repression since it was published in the U.S., and then translated and published abroad. In Italy, I have been told, it was particularly inspiring to women, long held down by church-backed, repressive laws and patriarchal customs.
