Series Editors: Waldo E. Martin Jr., University of California, Berkeley, and Patricia Sullivan, University of South Carolina

By publishing pathbreaking books informed by several disciplines, the John Hope Franklin Series in African American History and Culture seeks to illuminate America's multicultural past and the ways in which it has informed the nation's democratic experiment.
