Listen to C-Span2:  Manisha Sinha The Slave’s Cause: A History of Abolition

Cast Just Obliquy’ on Oppressors: Black Radicalism in the Age of Revolution

Architects of Their Own Liberation: African Americans, Emancipation and the Civil War

“Coming of Age: The Historiography of Black Abolitionism

“Black Abolitionism: The Assault on Southern Slavery and the Struggle for Racial Equality

Slave's Cause

                         The Book: The Slave’s Cause: A History of Abolition

Note:  The number of Blacks present or not; when will we stop letting them be the experts on us?
