Some years ago, amid a dispute over who freed the slaves? in the Civil War South, I was interviewed on Washington’s public radio station about the meaning of the Emancipation Proclamation.

This book has all of the ins and outs of why Louisiana is just a little bit different... I wondered why Milliken Frazier, a free black from Coushatta, Louisiana would move over to Texas and sign up to be a slave for Jefferson S. Nash so he could be a pottery... Then wondered no more. It describes the climate in Louisiana at that time perfectly... Actually based on quite a bit of data. Nice 1974 take on the problem...

An important book to add to your collection about slavery. This book should be on the "must read" literature for any Black History class. Well researched and cited with facts, leaving the author's personal twists and biases out of the work. It challenges the current perception that ALL Blacks in America were from a system of slavery without any strengths. It decimates the current hypothesis that slavery and its inception is based on an evil called racism. It brings to light that there were Negroes in the colonies 150 years before the American Revolution and an economical/labor focus system evolved to economically ensure that the colonies thrive because failure literally meant death. I recommend laying your foundation about Black race relations with this powerful subject matter with the Preface and Prologue section. Also have your highlighter ready because you will be introduced to the "caste" system instead of the Critical Race Theory stating that slavery is because the colonials were racists. This book is very important for someone collecting scholarly work in this area.
