Summary
The harsh road from slavery to citizenship passed through many frontiers. This collection of writings offers an overview of and insights into African American frontiers, from the publication of the first slave narrative in 1703, to 1948 when President Truman integrated the Armed Forces. The book is a useful historical resource that brings together diverse first-person accounts of individual African Americans through primary source documents. These accounts enable the reader to see the world as it once was, as told by the men and women who lived in it
