Summary
"Herbert G. Gutman uses quantitative records from the United States census intermixed with qualitative materials such as letters slaves wrote each other, testimony given to Government Commissions, and observations of foreign travelers to assure us that the black family was never disorganized by slavery. He aptly refutes the theory that the slave experience resulted in broken black families. He insists that the black family has always been an effective means for transmitting a black cultural heritage...The volume was stimulated by the public and academic controversy surrounding Daniel P. Moynihan's The Negro Family in America: The Case for National Actions (1965). Moynihan argued that American blacks were caught in a "tangle of pathology" resulting from the deterioration of the black family." [from Endnotes.com]

Summary
"By following the story of my great-grandmother Isabella Ford's life, and adding to it with information from available sources, I have been able to get a better understanding of the circumstances of Lancaster's free blacks. Her story provides a sense of life in mid-nineteenth century Lancaster County and shows how free black families held their own, despite an environment that was often unfriendly and that restricted their opportunities by both law and custom."

Only in the narrative and on two maps is there evidence that Conestoga at one time had a significant African American population."
