Review Text

  • By Penny on December 20, 2012

    William L. Byrd III has done many researchers and historians great favors with his collections of documents having to do with people of color. I've used others of his volumes and find that they are accurate and complete. It is so useful to have all these documents right at hand, and I'm grateful for all his hard work. I've just gotten this one but I wish I'd had it earlier! Although I'll chiefly use it as a reference source, as the author/editor states, just reading through these laws is an education in itself, showing how the state used its power to enforce slavery and the condition of free people of color. Not for the faint of heart.
