Summary
From slavery to freedom describes the rise of slavery, the interaction of European and African cultures in the New World, and the emergence of a distinct culture and way of life among slaves and free Blacks. The authors examine the role of Blacks in the nation's wars, the rise of an articulate, restless free Black community by the end of the eighteenth century, and the growing resistance to slavery among an expanding segment of the Black population
