Raising Freedom's Child: Black Children and Visions of the Future After Slavery: February ebook of the month

Posted on: Feb 2, 2009 @ 1:31:33 pm

Raising Freedom's Child: Black Children and Visions of the Future After Slavery by Mary Niall Mitchell

NYU Press, 2008

In celebration of African-American History month, NYU Press and NetLibrary are pleased to announce that Raising Freedom's Child: Black Children and Visions of the Future After Slavery will be available as the February eBook of the Month. Drawing on previously untapped resources, author Mary Niall Mitchell demonstrates how the black child became a figure upon which people projected their hopes and fears about slavery's abolition. From the 1850s and the Civil War to emancipation and the official end of Reconstruction in 1877, Raising Freedom's Child examines slave emancipation and opposition to it as a far-reaching, national event with profound social, political, and cultural consequences. Mitchell analyzes multiple views of the black child--in letters, photographs, newspapers, novels, and court cases--to demonstrate how Americans contested and defended slavery and abolition.

UCF Libraries owns Raising Freedom's Child in print, LC2802.S9 M58 2008.

The February eBook of the Month is provided with free unlimited access February 1-28 through the generous support of NYU Press. To read, click on NetLibrary on the UCF Libraries list of databases at http://library.ucf.edu/Databases/
