Re: AMBIGUOUS LIVES
In Response To: Re: AMBIGUOUS LIVES ()
It is interesting that right after you posted about this book, I picked up a book to read that has been on my shelf for a while, hadn't gotten around to reading it yet, but since it is about the case of a Free Woman of Color who became the largest landholder in Hancock County Georgia, when her white father died and left her his estate - I decided to open it up - especially since we have the new FPOC Forum.
It is entitled "Woman of Color, Daughter of Privilege: Amanda America Dickson 1849 - 1893", by Kent Anderson Leslie.
To my surprise - in the introduction the author the author discusses historical texts that present the stories of mixed families "from the inside out": "We Were Always Free", "Children of Strangers", "Proud Shoes" and "Ambiguous Lives". None of which have I read - so now I have a longer list of books to pursue.
Am wondering if anyone has read any of these?
