Summary

From the dusty archives and faded documents of our past, Freedom Ships brings to life the exciting drama of a bold effort to help black "freedmen" return to Africa to seek real freedom and found their own nation. These brave black pioneers dared to risk all dangers so their children could escape the inhuman bondage and overwhelming weight of prejudice in the slave era of America. Book jacket.
