"I have only praise for Faith Berry's book: in my opinion a valuable, and unique, aid to understanding the complex argument about slavery," - Lewis P. Simpson, Boyd Professor Emeritus, Louisiana State University.

Many of the authors in this collection - not at a popular price for general readers and students - have never been assembled together before. They represent both black and white voices of different cultural backgrounds. Important new views are gained through the lens of Faith Berry's narratives on such well-known figures as Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Mark Twain, Frederick Douglass, and many others. These pages unfold a multifaceted and unflinching literary history of race relations in the United States.
