Philadelphia, PA: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1979. Inscribed, signed by author. Dust jacket has edgewear primarily at head of spine with one small tear, corners worn. In this age of increased complexity in black-white relations, a study of Hampton, Virginia, tells the story of what race relations in postbellum America "might have been." Here alone the promises of Emancipation and Reconstruction were fulfilled. A tradition of black success in business, education, politics, and social solidarity was established; blacks acquired property and political power and held on long after blacks in other communities lost them. This study offers a unique opportunity to follow a group of freedmen from their exuberance at winning freedom to their devastation by the resurgence of racism at the close of the century..
