African Americans in Early North Carolina: A Documentary History
draws upon 17th- and 18th-century sources to trace the history of
African Americans, slave and free, in North Carolina through 1800.
The documents are used to outline the arrival of Africans, mechanisms
for maintaining the yoke of slavery, slave resistance, manumission,
and the challenges facing free blacks. This book presents in an
accessible format a variety of primary sources, which are suitable for classroom use and have appeal for historians, genealogists, and
anyone curious about the lives of black North Carolinians during the
earliest years of the state's history.
