The abolitionists and the South, 1831-1861 by Stanley Harrold ( )
8 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 2,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Within the American antislavery movement that reached its peak during the thirty years before the Civil War, abolitionists were the most outspoken opponents of slavery. They were also distinct from other members of the movement in advocating, on the basis of moral principle, the immediate emancipation of slaves and equal rights for black people. Instead of focusing on the "immediatists" as products of northern culture, as previous historians have done, Stanley Harrold examines their involvement with antislavery action in the South - particularly in the region that bordered on the free states. How, he asks, did antislavery action in the South help shape abolitionist beliefs and policies in the period leading up to the Civil War? At the heart of this book is a dramatic story of individuals who, under the auspices of northern abolitionism, actively opposed slavery in the upper South. Harrold explores the interaction of northern abolitionists, southern white emancipators, and southern black liberators in fostering a continuing antislavery focus on the South, and integrates southern antislavery action into an understanding of abolitionist reform culture. He describes the risks taken by those northerners who went south to rescue slaves from their masters and discusses the impact of abolitionist missionaries, who preached an antislavery gospel to the enslaved as well as to the free. Harrold also offers an assessment of the impact of such activities on the coming of the Civil War and Reconstruction

Subversives : antislavery community in Washington, D.C., 1828-1865 by Stanley Harrold ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"While many scholars have examined the slavery disputes in the halls of Congress, Subversives in the first history of practical abolitionism in the streets, homes, and places of business of the nation's capital. Historian Stanley Harrold looks beyond resolutions, platforms, and debates to describe how desperate African Americans - both free and slave - and sympathetic whites engaged in a dangerous day-to-day campaign to drive the "peculiar institution" out of Washington, D.C., and the Chesapeake region." "That slavery was both vulnerable and vicious in Washington is at the heart of Harrold's study. Northern and foreign visitors were outraged by its existence in the seat of American government. For the South, Washington was a vital stronghold at the section's border. As economic changes caused slavery's decline in the Chesapeake and masters dismembered slave families by selling them South, local African Americans sought and received the support of a small number of whites eager to strike a blow against slavery in a strategic and very symbolic setting. Together they formed a subversive community that flourished in and about the city from the late 1820s through the mid-1860s. Risking beatings, mob violence, imprisonment, and death, these men and women distributed abolitionist literature, purchased the freedom of slaves, sued to prevent families from being separated, and aided escape efforts." "Harrold overcomes the secrecy inherent to Washington's antislavery community to document its formation and activities with remarkable detail and perception. He shows how slaveholders and their sympathizers fought to reinforce their hold on a system under attack and how the dissidents raised a radical challenge to the existing social order simply by engaging in interracial cooperation. While some subversives held power as politicians and journalists, most were obscure individuals. Black and white women played an important role."--BOOK JACKET

[This book] balances accounts of the actions of African-American leaders with investigations of the lives of the ordinary men and women in black communities. This community focus helps make this a history of a people rather than an account of a few extraordinary individuals. Yet the book does not neglect important political and religious leaders, entrepreneurs, and entertainers. And it gives extensive coverage to African-American art, literature, and music. [This book] tells a ... story of survival, struggle, and triumph over adversity. It will leave students with an appreciation of the central place of black people and black culture in this country and a better understanding of both African-American and American history.-Pref
