The Forgotten Fifth
African Americans in the Age of RevolutionBook - 2006
As the US gained independence, a full fifth of the country's population was African American. The experiences of these men and women have been largely ignored. This text reorients our understanding of early America, and reveals the perilous choices of the founding fathers that shaped the nation's future.
