In her new book, historian Kellie Carter Jackson, Assistant Professor of Africana Studies at Wellesley College, provides the first historical analysis exclusively focused on the tactical use of violence among antebellum black activists. Taking readers beyond early white abolitionists' politics of "moral suasion" and the romanticism of the Underground Railroad, she explores the agonizing decisions, strategies, and actions of black abolitionists responsible for instigating monumental social and political change.
