Free Black Communities and the Underground Railroad

The Geography of Resistance

LaRoche, Cheryl Janifer

(Book - 2014)
Free Black Communities and the Underground Railroad
Print
This study employs the tools of archaeology to uncover a new historical perspective on the Underground Railroad. Unlike previous histories of the Underground Railroad, which have focused on frightened fugitive slaves and their benevolent abolitionist accomplices, Cheryl LaRoche focuses instead on free African American communities, the crucial help they provided to individuals fleeing slavery, and the terrain where those flights to freedom occurred.
