Editorial Reviews

Review

"Taylor has a good eye for social history and has effectively teased an important and compelling story out of a wide variety of sources. Among Taylor's major interpretive innovations are ones that implicitly challenge the privileged place of the black church and the black elite in antebellum African American community studies." - Roy E. Finkenbine, coeditor, Black Abolitionist Papers, 1830-1865"

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful, unique addition to existing histories of African Americans in the north. I had no idea (as most people, I think) that the Black community in Cincinnati had such a great impact on mid-nineteenth century American history. Slavery in the north, the work of Black Abolitionists, the importance of the Ohio River, the work of Black churches and the Prince Hall Masons to Black freedom in the 19th century, Fugitive Slave Law cases, and much more are covered. Professor Taylor has written an enlightening, exciting account of this epoch in American history. Thank you so very much Nikki M.Taylor!
