    Book Description:

    Through exhaustive research, White imaginatively re-creates the experience of black New Yorkers as they moved from slavery to freedom. He recovers the raucous world of the street, the elegance of the city’s African-American balls, and the grubbiness of the Police Office. This book offers a unique understanding of emancipation’s impact on everyday life, and on the many forms freedom can take.
