Description

American slavery was marked by its enormous scale, its shocking injustices, and its victims' passionate hunger for freedom.  BRAVING THE NEW WORLD  offers a spellbinding panorama of the slave trade, the lives of the steadily increasing African American population, and the dramatic interaction between free whites and enslaved blacks.  The book spotlights the birth of black American culture--the songs, methods of child rearing, religion, arts. language, and legends that evolved from the slaves' unique access to the traditions of Africa, Europe and America.
