To 'Joy My Freedom: Southern Black Women's Lives and Labors After the Civil War

by

As the Civil War drew to a close, newly emancipated black women workers made their way to Atlanta--the economic hub of the newly emerging urban and industrial South--in order to build an independent and free life from the rubble of their enslaved past. This book traces their lives in the postbellum era and reveals the centrality of their labors to the African-American struggle for freedom and justice. 15 halftone illustrations. 2 maps. 3 tables.
