2 Lerone Bennett Before the Mayflower: A History of Black America
Johnson Publishing Co. 1969 B000J2K74I Hardcover Used - Good No Jacket 
4th Edition (1969) Library bound hardback - Ex-library with usual marks. No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. . . . . . . . . .. 'Regardless of Mr. Bennett's apparent biases, and sometimes lofty criticisms of white America, this book is a remarkable read. When writing about such an emotional and intense subject, I believe it is impossible to be completely objective, especially when the topic involves the oppression and suppression of your own people. That being said, the author does a good job of remaining as objective as possible throughout the bulk of the book. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about the history of black America.' -- Samuel Benjamin

13 J. C. Furnas Goodbye to Uncle Tom
William Sloane Associates 1956 B0006AUIEM Hardcover Used - Very Good No Jacket 
Some underlining observed in text. Binding tight and square. No DJ. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 'Goodbye to Uncle Tom_ is a nonfiction look at how American views of black people and slavery were shaped by _Uncle Tom's Cabin_---both the book itself, and the endless, increasingly low-rent plays derived from it. At one time 'Tom-shows' were a large subset of the theater industry, since even the most pious folk could find very little to object to in going to one. They were a national institution until after World War One, and were only finally killed off by movies. It's an interesting look at a little-known part of US social history, and I wish it were being re-printed.' -- Eric Oppenon

William King, a Scots-Irish/American Presbyterian minister and abolitionist, had organized the Elgin Association to buy 9,000 acres of land for resettlement of the refugees, to give them a start in Canada. Within a few years, numerous families were living here, having cleared land, built houses, and developed crops. They established schools and churches, and were thriving before the American Civil War. Buxton now has a population of over 400 people.

Pope John XXIII on Race and Racial Justice, James Lyons
20 James Lyons Pope John XXIII on Race and Racial Justice
Paulist Press 1966 B0007FMP1U First Edition Soft Cover Used - Good 
First Edition (1966) No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. Wear on cover. Secure pages and no tears. .. . . . . . . . . . . . .. . FROM THE INTRODUCTION: It was the closing day of the first session of Vatican Council II. As the bells of St. Peter's rang out the noon Angelus, Pope John appeared at the open window of his study to bless the thousands in the square. He saw nuns and taxi drivers, tourists and shopkeepers, as well as several hundred bishops mingled happily within the arms of Bernini's colonnade. As an attendant placed a red velvet cape around the pontiff's shoulders for protection against the cold air, Pope John said with spontaneous and obvious delight: “Look at them — the whole family is here.' Pope John looked upon all people as members of one family, the family of God. The fact that there is racial prejudice in almost every nation deeply pained him. While Pope John was deeply concerned with our major foreign problem — international peace — he was also deeply concerned with our major domestic problem — interracial justice. For instance, while the encyclical Pacem in terris is concerned with international peace, it is astonishing to notice how much of this document deals with racial justice and peace. In Mater et Magistra and in other documents. Pope John also pleaded for racial unity. It may well be that he saw a connection between attaining justice between nations and attaining justice within each nation. The following concise catechism has been prepared from Pope John's statements on racial justice and charity.* • The quotations from the encyclicals Pacem in terris and Mater et Magistra are taken from the Paulist Press editions. The statement of Pope John XXIII after the canonization of St. Martin De Porres is from The Pope Speaks, Vol. 8, n. 1, 1962. The opening anecdote about Pope John is taken from Louis Michaels, The Stories of Pope John XXIII (Springfield, 111.: Templegate, 1964) .
