SUMMARY

Woman Of Color, Daughter Of Privilege is the biography of Amanda America Dickson, born 1849, died 1893. The daughter of a white planter and an unconsenting slave in antebellum Georgia, Amanda America Dickson confounded and ultimately triumphed over the harsh racial strictures that ordered her world. Legally a slave well into her adolescence, Dickson inherited most of her fathers half-million-dollar estate after his death in 1885, making her the largest landowner in her county and the wealthiest black woman in the post-Civil War South. Ranging from the days of King Cotton through the Civil War, Reconstruction, and New South eras, Kent Leslie uses Dicksons life to show how family ties could break down the color barrier and how transgressions of elaborate racial codes were sometimes ignored, tolerated, or even accepted. Woman Of Color, Daughter Of Privilege is highly recommended for all Womens Studies, Black Studies and American History reading lists, as well as for anyone who would enjoy a well researched, superbly written biography of a remarkable personality.Kent Anderson Leslie is the author of 'Woman of Color, Daughter of Privilege: Amanda America Dickson, 1849-1893 (Brown Thrasher Books)', published 1996 under ISBN 9780820318714 and ISBN 082031871X.
