Summary "The experiences of Mary Blackford and her family constitute an interesting and revealing account of ante-bellum Southern life, pointing out that Southern society had many nuances. The book contains new material on Southern opposition to slavery, the experience of Negroes sent to Liberia, the Nat Turner insurrection, and the reaction of colored folk to thralldom. Much of the material comes from the Negroes themselves."--Preface.
