Slave counterpoint : Black culture in the eighteenth-century Chesapeake and Lowcountry

"On the eve of the American Revolution, nearly three-quarters of all African Americans in mainland British America lived in two regions: the Chesapeake, centered in Virginia, and the Lowcountry, with its hub in South Carolina. Here, Philip Morgan compares and contrasts African American life in these two regional Black cultures, exploring the differences as well as the similarities. The result is a detailed and comprehensive view of slave life in the colonial American South."
