From the Back Cover:

Originally published in London in 1857 and never before available in paperback, The Garies and Their Friends is the second novel published by an African American and the first to chronicle the experience of free blacks in the pre-Civil War northeast. The novel anticipates themes that were to become important in later African American fiction, including miscegenation and 'passing, ' and tells the story of the Garies and their friends, the Ellises, a 'highly respectable and industrious coloured family.'

About the Author:

Frank J. Webb, an African American born and raised in antebellum Philadelphia, worked during the late 1820s for Freedom's Journal, the first newspaper published by African Americans, and was a regular contributor to The New Era: A Colored American National Journal in the early 1870s. Robert Reid-Pharr is an assistant professor of English at the Johns Hopkins University.
