An Opinion on 'From Midnight to Dawn'

"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.
It certainly challenged the credibility of these two scholars.
Some say this was pure fabrication.

Start with this post on AfriGeneas' Underground Railroad forum, then work you way backwards and forwards to other posts.;read=500

I, for one, am hesitant to read this book.
I'll await for the critics' reviews.
