From Slave Ship to Harvard:
Yarrow Mamout and the History of an African American Family


By: James H. Johnston
Fordham University Press, New York

Description:
A true story of an African American family in Maryland over six generations. The author has used paintings, photographs, books, diaries, court records, legal documents, and oral histories to trace the family from the colonial period until today.

"An absorbing study and story of a slave in America. Once begun, this book is very hard to put down. It weaves a prodigious amount of research into a compelling narrative of not just one man's journey but also of the struggle of every man and woman to achieve identity and success against often overwhelming odds. This is a book that no book club and no course on slavery in America should be without." Dr. Edward Papenfuse, Maryland State Archivist

B&W photos, table of contents, introduction, notes, index, hardcover, 302 pp.
