Stephen Kantrowitz's More Than Freedom

93 Words1 Page

Building on the work of other Reconstructionist authors, Stephen Kantrowitz sets his work in a larger historiography of Reconstruction. Drawing upon letters, newspapers, pamphlets, diaries, accounts and reports of both white and black activists in Boston, Kantrowitz sets the scene for the struggle of “colored citizens” and their wide-ranging campaign of equal citizenship. Bringing a bold new perspective to one of our nation’s defining epochs, More than Freedom helps to provide a conceptual framework for examining the extent and limits of the so-called freedom achieved in 1865 and the legacy that endures today.
