Abstract:

"Fauset was a noted civil rights activist, educator, anthropologist and folklorist, half-brother to the novelist Jessie Redmon Fauset and an active figure in the Harlem Renaissance. For Freedom was his first book, essentially a history of the American Negro written for black school children. The book provided biographical sketches of Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington Carver (among others), illustrated throughout, with a special section at the end entitled The New Negro, highlighting many of the Harlem Renaissance figures who were Fauset's contemporaries. Given what was likely available to black school children at the time, Fauset's book was ground-breaking work." -- Descriptions from Lorne Bair Rare Books, bookseller.
