Summary

An anthology of 19 articles about the African-American experience in Pennsylvania, drawing on scholarly essays from local, regional, and national journals. The essays are divided into four sections on the commercial economy (1684--1840), the industrializing era (1840--1870), the industrial era (1870--1945), and the transformation of the Black community (1945--1985). In his introduction, Trotter (history, Carnegie Mellon U.) examines the transformation of the state's black historiography from its early beginnings to the present.
