150 From Slavery to Glory African Americans Come to Aurora, Illinois 1850-1920
Aurora, Illinois Aurora Historical Society, 2005 0977089606 / 9780977089604 Softcover As New Softcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Brand-new, just taken out of shrink-wrap, neither shelf- nor edge-worn, neither sunned nor marked as a remainder. Sterling condition softcover copy, with unfurled tips, tight binding, and clean internals, showing only very slight shelf- and edge-wear. From the publisher's blurb, "The early history of Aurora, Illinois, is tied closely to issues of race and equality. The city had a reputation as radically abolitionist and had a number of stops on the Underground Railroad. Frederick Douglass, the great orator and abolitionist, twice spoke here. By 1850, Aurora had its first "Free Black" resident. In 1854, Aurora hosted a congressional convention that helped establish the anti-slavery platform of the newly formed Republican Party. At the same time, Aurora struggled to square the Jeffersonian dream of equality and justice for all people with the converging religious, scientific and social pronouncements on racial issues." Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography. 213 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
