Abstract:

Although antebellum African Americans were sometimes allowed to attend Quaker meetings, they were almost never admitted to full meeting membership, as was Miles Lassiter. His story illuminates the unfolding of the 19th-century color line into the 20th. Margo Williams had only a handful of stories and a few names her mother remembered from her childhood about her family's home in Asheboro, North Carolina. Her research would soon help her to make contact with long lost relatives and a pilgrimage "home" with her mother in 1982. Little did she know she would discover a large loving family and a Quaker ancestor -- a Black Quaker ancestor. -- Publisher's description.
