Witness for Freedom: African American Voices on Race, Slavery, and Emancipation

Synopsis

Encompassing a broad range of African American voices, from Frederick Douglass to anonymous fugitive slaves, this collection collects eighty-nine exceptional documents that represent the best of the five-volume Black Abolitionist Papers. In these compelling texts African Americans tell their own stories of the struggle to end slavery and claim their rights as American citizens, of the battle against colonization and the 'back to Africa' movement, and of their troubled relationship with the federal government.
