A Look Inside
Main Description
This collection of runaway slave notices from Virginia highlights the plight of African Americans fleeing bondage in early nineteenth century Virginia. Presented in modern type, the advertisements appear exactly as published. The preface situates these advertisements historically, and indicates the significance of the collection for studies of African American history, the history of slavery, and resistance to slavery in early American culture. The advertisements are presented chronologically and index by slave and master. This collection of historical documentation will be valuable to scholars interested in the history of slavery and resistance in America.
