Summary:
Freedom bags is the story of African-American women who migrated from the rural south during the first 3 decades of the 20th century. Hoping to escape from the racism and poverty of the post-Civil War South, they boarded segregated trains for an uncertain future up North. Most could find jobs only as houseworkers, but they kept their dignity and sense of worth through difficult times.
