American Antislavery Writings
Colonial Beginnings To Emancipation
EDITED BY JAMES C. BAKER
Th is wide ranging collection of American writings protesting slavery is the first collection to take the full measure of a body of literature that spans nearly two centuries and, exceptionally for its time, includes writers black and white, male and female. Writings from 1688 through 1865 include poetry, fiction, song, correspondence, speeches, and essays from a wide range of well and lesser known writers. While the pages of this volume are tissue thin, the book is small enough to hold comfortably in one hand, is very well bound, and contains color illustrations.
