Summary
Sketches of slavery as it existed in the colonies--Northern and Southern. He presents the accomplishments of some of the most distinguished slaves, including poets Phillis Wheatley and George Moses Horton, as well as the mathematician and astronomer, Benjamin Banneker. Johnson is particularly interested in presenting the valorous roles African Americans played in America's various wars. Johnson also offers numerous sketches of events, places, and individuals that are of importance to American history. These topics include, among others, Frederick Douglass, Liberia, Nat Turner, the Underground Railroad, and the Emancipation Proclamation. The latter part of Johnson's book is devoted to the progress of the African American race since Emancipation. He describes the early successes of reconstruction despite Southern white resistance. In particular, Johnson highlights advances in the education of blacks and significant financial and religious progress
