Product Description

On the Morning Tide, like the author’s earlier book, Long Hammering, continues the challenge of creating a more accurate image of the African American in the history of New York. Using an array of primary and secondary sources, including diary and oral recordings to carefully examine the African American presence in New York from the early 17th century through the late 20th century, the author argues convincingly for a more inclusive history, one that contains a substantially improved image of the African American community.

 

“Professor William-Myers’ engrossing essays continue his vital and groundbreaking work of bringing to light the African experience in New York in the colonial and post-Revolutionary periods. His stories teach lively lessons, and they remind us, as well, of a  too often neglected insight, that African Americans were active participants in the history of nearly all parts of the early Republic.”

 

--Christopher Ehret, University of California at Los Angeles

 

“With deep passion and a commitment to scholarly integrity, A. J.  William-Myer’s On the Morning Tide bring together essays that illuminate the history and culture of Africans in the Hudson Valley from the days of the Dutch settlement to contemporary times. This pioneering scholarship opens up avenues for future research on African Americans in the Hudson Valley and lays the foundation for comparative studies with other racial/ethnic groups in the region. He addresses issues of class and gender through the use of compelling oral histories, as well as manuscript data. His anthology will make a fine companion for African American history and United States history courses, as well as Diasporan studies.”

 

--Lillian Serece Willaims, author of Strangers in the Land of Paradise.
