A groundbreaking collection of abolitionist writing from throughout the history of American slavery

From the beginning of the transatlantic slave trade to the ambiguity of the reconstruction era, resistance and protest writing were a central part of slavery in America, and - ultimately - played a crucial role in its abolition. Placing well-known abolitionist writing alongside less celebrated and little-known accounts of everyday lives and activism, Unsung makes the case for focusing on the histories of black people as agents and architects of their own struggle and ultimate liberation.
