Beschreibung

This is the first book-length study of free, white craftsmen and tradesmen in the pre-Civil War South. Michele Gillespie details these workers' worlds and tells how they struggled against declining social and economic opportunities while skilled slaves increasingly took up the mechanical, building, clothing, and decorative arts trades.

Portrait

Michele Gillespie is an associate professor of history at Wake Forest University. She is coeditor of three books: Neither Lady nor Slave, Taking Off the White Gloves, and The Devil's Lane.
