Race Over Party: Black Politics and Partisanship in Late Nineteenth-Century Boston Paperback – May 21, 2018
"The Farmer's Son" by John Connell
"A fascinating portrait of a single sensibility, a born noticer, someone on whom nothing is lost, observing birth and death, the landscape, and his own heritage." ―Colm Tóibín, author of "Brooklyn" Learn more

This book forces us to rethink postbellum African American urban politics as a 'tragedy with a silver lining.' In the face of repeated failures to achieve full citizenship and equal rights through electoral politics (as either independents or loyal partisans), Race Over Party convincingly argues that late nineteenth century black Bostonians turned to grassroots community organizing as an alternative as well as complement to electoral strategies for social change. As such, they also helped to prepare the groundwork for the twentieth century Black Freedom Movement.--Joe William Trotter, Jr., author of Black Milwaukee: The Making of an Industrial Proletariat, 1915-45
This is a much-needed book. It adds to our understanding of African American politics in the age of Emancipation, but more important, it shifts the focus from the South to the North in the post-Emancipation period, exposing how African Americans in the North used their particular politics to respond to rapidly changing social and political conditions."--Shawn Alexander, University of Kansas
