Annotation Making extensive use of primary sources, C. Christopher Brown has broken new ground and filled a long overlooked gap in Maryland history. Here is the story of African Americans on Maryland's Eastern Shore, from the promise-filled days following the end of slavery to the rise of lynch law, segregation, and systematic efforts at disenfranchisement. Resisting attempts to render them second-class citizens, black communities rallied to their churches and fought determinedly to properly educate their children and gain a measure of political power. Brown's vivid stories make the record of cross-racial democracy at once shameful, revealing, inspirational, and all too contemporary. A masterful blend of scholarship and insightful analysis that is at once engrossing and informative. Some strong language and violence.
