About this product
- DescriptionThe compelling account of how two heritages united in their struggle to gain freedom and equality in America w updated with new content! The first paths to freedom taken by runaway slaves led to Native American villages. There, black men and women found acceptance and friendship among our country s original inhabitants. Though they seldom appear in textbooks and movies, the children of Native- and African-American marriages helped shape the early days of the fur trade, added a new dimension to frontier diplomacy, and made a daring contribution to the fight for American liberty.Since its original publication, William Loren Katz s Black Indians has remained the definitive work on a long, arduous quest for freedom and equality. This new edition features a new cover and includes updated information about a neglected chapter in American history.
