Note Introduction by William Andrews, scholar of the Harlem Renaissance and of Antebellum literature, copyrighted 1999.
Summary First published in 1902, this classic story about a displaced Southern family's struggle to survive and prosper in early Harlem was one of the first novels to depict the harsh realities of ghetto life. Written by the son of a former slave, this book marked the transition from the post-Civil War period to the Harlem Renaissance, and the revolutionary truths it uncovered still resonate today.
