Description
This book shines a light on the realities of slave life, freemen, nationally acclaimed artists and civil rights leaders, revealing three hundred years of untold contributions to our American heritage.Robert K. Sutton, PhD, Chief Historian for the National Park Service said, “After three years of extensive research, this remarkable book brings to the public a rich and complex component of our American narrative by looking beyond the bricks and mortar of historic sites to the people who—through courage, creativity and conviction—helped shape our nation.” Written by Dr. Deborah Lee, Honoring Their Paths: African American Contributions Along the Journey Through Hallowed Ground, is a 248-page book that was produced with the keen insight and expertise of 34 historians and academicians. It includes fifteen easy-to-use maps, fascinating profiles as well as archival images depicting many of the indelible contributions made by African Americans who lived within the four-state Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area that runs from Gettysburg, PA to Monticello, VA. “Generation after generation, the people of this amazing region have been called upon to define what it means to be an American,” said Cate Magennis Wyatt, president of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership. “Yet we found many of these extraordinary stories were untold. Accordingly, we sought and fortunately secured funding to ensure we had the finest scholars and the most dedicated team to more fully uncover this history” Dr. Lee said, “Understanding the African American experience lends new dimensions to the phrase ‘hallowed ground.’ We owe gratitude to the many African Americans, famous and anonymous, who have enriched our world in so many ways. Through their lives and work, their struggles and achievements, they hallowed this ground. Through this project, and through visits to the places they knew, we seek to honor their paths.”
