Printed in conjunction with the exhibition A Stirring Song Sung Heroic: African Americans from Slavery to Freedom, 1619 to 1865 presented by the John B.Hurford ‘60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, Haverford College and Lehigh University Art Galleries, this book features the work of photographer William Earle Williams. The history of American slavery is presented across three series of 80 black and white silver gelatin prints. These images document mostly anonymous, unheralded, and uncelebrated places in the New World - from the Caribbean to North America - where Americans, black and white, determined the meaning of freedom.

This is a soft cover book.
