Black Europe and the African Diaspora

Freeing Charles

EDITED BY DARLENE CLARK HINE, TRICA DANIELLE KEATON, AND STEPHEN SMALL

The Struggle to Free a Slave on the Eve of the Civil War

In focusing on contemporary intellectual currents and themes, the contributors theorize and re-imagine a range of historical and contemporary issues related to the broader questions of blackness, diaspora, hegemony, transnationalism, and “Black Europe” itself as lived and perceived realities.

“In this magnificently conceived and subtly rendered book, Christianson not only brings to life the men and women of the Underground Railroad . . . he also guides us unflinchingly along the heartbreaking fault line of racial relations that warped life in America— in both the North and the South—in the age of slavery.”—Fergus M. Bordewich, author of Bound for Canaan: The Underground Railroad and the War for the Soul of America

“Enormously stimulating, this volume is essential reading for those interested in exploring the evolving story of the Black presence worldwide.”—David Barry Gaspar, coeditor of Beyond Bondage: Free Women of Color in the Americas Contributors are Allison Blakely, Jacqueline Nassy Brown, Tina Campt, Fred Constant, Alessandra Di Maio, Philomena Essed, Terri Francis, Barnor Hesse, Darlene Clark Hine, Dienke Hondius, Eileen Julien, Trica Danielle Keaton, Kwame Nimako, Tiffany Ruby Patterson, T.

Activist Sentiments Reading Black Women in the Nineteenth Century P. GABRIELLE FOREMAN

“Foreman rereads nineteenth-century women writers with fresh eyes, vividly demonstrating how they were interpreted both then and now. She asks that we heed Frances Harper’s admonition to ‘read aright.’ Activist Sentiments does just that.”—Carla L.

DAVID T. BEITO AND LINDA ROYSTER BEITO

WILLIAM MCKEE EVANS

STEFAN M. BRADLEY

“William McKee Evans is that rare scholar who writes clearly and well, displays an impressive grasp of the smaller facts of history, and yet can rise above the fray of footnotes to make sweeping and extraordinarily telling historical observations. This book represents the capstone of a remarkable career, and it is his most expansive and well considered work.”—Timothy B. Tyson, author of Blood Done Sign My Name: A True Story

“This dramatic narrative effectively shows how black students at Columbia, even those from more privileged backgrounds, joined in an alliance of racial solidarity with Harlem’s black working-class community.” —Wayne Glasker, author of Black Students in the Ivory Tower: African American Student Activism at the University of Pennsylvania, 1967-1990

African American Freemasonry and the Struggle for Democracy in America

Black Workers and the UAW in Detroit

COREY D. B. WALKER

“Much more than a simple institutional history of the UAW and its black members, this work deftly moves beyond this theme to other crucial issues connected to the workplace, the Detroit community, the Cold War against labor, and to the civil rights and Black Nationalist movements.”—Stephen Meyer, author of “Stalin over Wisconsin”: The Making and Unmaking of Militant Unionism, 1900-1950

DAVID M. LEWIS-COLMAN

“Walker’s attention to freemasonry expands the terrain of analysis of black civil society. His retelling of the story . . . recasts how scholars in the field think of the Masons and their place in African American history.”—Eddie S.

RAMLA M. BANDELE

The Black Worker

Black Identity and Political Activism in New York City, 1784-1861

“A welcome addition to the growing field of African diaspora studies.

Race, Labor, and Civil Rights since Emancipation

LESLIE M. ALEXANDER

Uniting the latest scholarship on race, labor, and civil rights, this reader aims to establish the richness of the African American working-class experience, and the indisputable role of black workers in shaping the politics and history of labor and race in the United States.
