Editorial Reviews


Raising Freedom's Child is an extensively researched account with perceptive insights and fresh information.”
-Louisiana History Review


“Mitchell’s sophisticated, nuanced reading of a wealth of previously untapped documents and period photographs casts a dazzling, fresh light on the way that abolitionists, educators, missionaries, planters, politicians, and free children of color envisioned the status of African Americans after emancipation.”
-Steven Mintz,University of Houston

Raising Freedom’s Child demonstrates the importance of childhood studies for understanding the nation’s political, economic, and social history. In this carefully researched book, Mitchell keeps the black child at the center of the struggle to define freedom in the aftermath of Civil War and emancipation.”
-Marie Jenkins Schwartz,University of Rhode Island

“An engaging and informative history of the Reconstruction era.”
-Journal of American History


“Effective and eloquent examination of an understudied era.”
-James Marten,Marquette University
