A conversation with first person sources about women, and the inner vision of faith; and social obstacles, family ties and triumphs, in slavery and freedom during the 19th century. Commentary on reconciliating hardships and lost with faith. Prepared for the 147th jubilee of African-Americans, by leading writer and book maker, Walter Rhett.
Hariett Tubman, Sarah and Angelina Grimke and many other women show up as first person sources in this book-length conversation about faith and obstacles, family and triumph in the 19th century. It shares the stories of several Charleston's families; at home, in Philadephia, Washington, DC, and at Hilton Head for the nation's first emancipation celebration.
The book includes photographs by Dorothea Lange and Marion Wolcott Post from the Library of Congress FSA collection, art by Sarah Whitman Wyman, a pioneer book art designer (courtesy the Boston Museum), and period engravings from Harper's Weekly and Leslie's Weekly.
