Summary
Examines the first forty years of the new nation through the fortunes of Philadelphia's unique free black community. As freedmen and fugitive slaves seek full participation in American democracy, a new leadership emerges. Black churches become the fulcrum of the community, providing schools, aiding their poor and agitating for the repeal of slave laws. Despite intensified brutality in the South and a new popular culture based on blackface minstrelsy in the North, African Americans resoundingly vote to stay and challenge the democracy.
