    The liberation of African Americans from slavery was achieved not solely, or even primarily, by legislation or military might: it was the result of decades of grassroots action. Meticulously researched and epic in scope, this history charts the efforts of extraordinary individuals such as John Brown, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman and Martin Delany to foster a growing antipathy in the North towards slavery, through Brown's execution after the Harper's Ferry raid, to the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863.
