Description -

Black Savannah focuses upon efforts of African Americans, free and slave, who worked together to establish and maintain a variety of religious, social, and cultural institutions to carve out niches in the larger economy: and to form cohesive families. The result was an autonomous black community in a key city of the Old South. Among the most interesting groups that created Savannah's community, however, were "nominal slaves," slaves in name only who lived apart from their masters, seeking and finding their own employment.

Black Savannah 1788-1864 by Whittington B. Johnson
