Campbell, Edward D., Jr., Rice, Kim C.


"Before Freedom Came is intended as an exhibition catalog for a major show developed by the Museum of the Confederacy. In fact, it is much more.... A remarkable array of illustrations accompanies the text. Together, words and pictures go deep into a new understanding of black life and the means by which scholars recover the history of the common folk". -- Library Journal"One of the finest books on plantation slavery now in print.... Anyone teaching African-American culture, plantation slavery, or the antebellum South should consider assigning this book as a central text". -- North Carolina Historical ReviewFirst published in 1991, Before Freedom Came is the most complete portrait available of antebellum slave life in the American South. Now in its third printing, this companion volume has established itself as an essential classroom tool in its own right, as well as a best-selling favorite among general audiences.With essays by leading southern historians Drew Gilpin Faust, John Michael Vlach, Charles Joyner, Deborah Gray White, David R. Goldfield, and Theresa A. Singleton, Before Freedom Came not only breaks new ground in African-American scholarship but reveals in accessible, moving accounts the everyday horrors and inspiring stories of survival that characterized slave life.Campbell, Edward D., Jr. is the author of 'Before Freedom Came: African-American Life in the AnteBellum South', published 1997 under ISBN 9780813913322 and ISBN 0813913322.
