About this title

Synopsis:

The definitive account of the first American blacks emancipated in the American Revolution who returned to Africa to establish their own country.It is an astonishing epic story. Some 1,500 ex-slaves are the protagonists of the story, blacks who had joined the British army in the Revolution, then left the States to go to Canada in 1783. They then joined about 400 blacks from London who had started the West African colony of Sierra Leone...Wilson's absorbing narrative is in a sense a collective biography, and it focuses especially on 300 individuals. Heroic figures emerge, destined to take an honored place in black history. 8.5x6", xi+463 pp, 16 pp. b&w plates.
