Free black Texans experienced the dangers and risks of life on the frontier in Texas. Those experiences, and many others, required of them a strength and fortitude that evidenced the spirit and abilities of free blacks in antebellum Texas. Sometimes with support from a few whites, as well as their own efforts, they struggled and survived. Editors Bruce A. Glasrud and Milton S. Jordan include a thoughtful introduction and a wide-ranging bibliography.
“Schoen and Muir were first-rate historians, and their pioneering work stands today as outstanding scholarship.”—Randolph B. Campbell, author of Gone to Texas and An Empire for Slavery
