About this title


This historic and educational book: Ambiguous Lives: Free Women of Color in Rural Georgia, 1989-1879, is about three African American women in antebellum Georgia, 1789-1879. These three women lived a life style that many of us, blacks and whites are not aware of. An extraordinary story; deeply researched and lovingly told.

From the Inside Flap:

Written as a "reclamation" of a long-ignored substratum of our society, Ambiguous Lives is more than the story of one family?it is a well-researched and fascinating profile of America, its race and gender relations, and its complex cultural weave.
