    Black Yankees: The Development of an Afro-American Subculture in Eighteenth-Century New England

    Mining rich but rarely touched material, Piersen unearths a sustaining folk culture created from African values. Focusing on Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, where black clusters formed as much as 16 percent of colonial communities, he illuminates the shared traditions of blacks' daily life. His interdisciplinary approach complements Lorenzo Greene's classic The Negro in New England (1942) and adds impressively to the fresh scholarship on black culture exemplified by Sterling Stuckey's Slave Culture ( LJ 4/1/87) and Charles Joyner's Down by the Riverside ( LJ 6/1/84). Highly recommended for local history, folklore, and Afro-American collections. [william_dillon_piersen]_black_yankees_the_develo_bookos-z1.org__1_
