COMMUNITY REVIEWS

An important book submitted by SoCalHistorian on June 26, 2020, 8:00pm An invaluable history of the long presence of slavery in Detroit and Michigan more generally. However, at times it suffers from a lack of editing which can weaken the author's argument at points. Still, an important book for those interested in Michigan history!
