About the Author:

Joe A. Mobley earned an M.A. from North Carolina State University. He has authored five books on various topics in North Carolina history, served as editor of the North Carolina Historical Review, and worked as administrator of the Historical Publications Section of the North Carolina Office of Archives and History. Now retired, Mr. Mobley is an adjunct faculty member of the history department at North Carolina State University.

Review:

With a firm grasp of the complex currents working at the local, state, and national levels; with an admirable blend of primary sources and oral testimony; and with a number of rare and authentic photographs and reproduced engravings, this little volume is a good example of how local history can engage, enlighten, and entertain while providing insights into the strivings and struggles of former slaves in their first generation of freedom. --Loren Schweninger, North Carolina Historical Review, October 1982
