Stories of freedom in Black New York by Shane White( file )
16 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,820 libraries worldwide
"Stories of Freedom in Black New York re-creates the experience of black New Yorkers as they moved from slavery to freedom. In the early decades of the nineteenth century, New York City's black community strove to realize what freedom meant and to find a new sense of itself, and, in the process, it created a vibrant urban culture. Through exhaustive research, Shane White imaginatively recovers the raucous world of the street, the elegance of the city's African American balls, and the grubbiness of the Police Office. He allows us to observe the style of black men and women, to watch their public behaviour, and to hear the cries of black hawkers, the strident music of black parades, and the sly stories of black con men."
