An Opinion on 'From Midnight to Dawn'
In Response To: [History] From Midnight to Dawn: The Last Tracks of the Underground Ra ()
"In 'Hidden in Plain View', historian Jacqueline Tobin and scholar Raymond Dobard offer the first proof that certain quilt patterns, including a prominent one called the Charleston Code, were, in fact, essential tools for escape along the Underground Railroad."
This bit of information caused quite a bit of controversy.
Start with this post on AfriGeneas' Underground Railroad forum, then work you way backwards and forwards to other posts.
I, for one, am hesitant to read this book.
