& Quot;The black experience in the antebellum South has been thoroughly documented. But histories set in the North are few.

Leslie Harris has masterfully brought more than two centuries of African American history back to life in this illuminating new work."--David Roediger, author of The Wages of WhitenessIn 1991 in lower Manhattan, a team of construction workers made an astonishing discovery. Just two blocks from City Hall, under twenty feet of asphalt, concrete.
