Description
John Brown is an endlessly fascinating historical figure. Here are two classic studies by a pioneer in African American studies, one about the place of John Brown in African American history, the other about the reasons for the unique esteem in which he has been held by successive generations of blacks.

-- Allies for Freedom traces John Brown's life as an abolitionist, working to guide slaves peacefully to freedom via the Underground Railroad and ultimately leading his famous raid on the federal arsenal and armory at Harper's Ferry. Captured in the raid, Brown was tried for treason and hanged in 1859.

-- Blacks on John Brown brings together reflections on John Brown that were written by blacks from several generations, including Frederick Douglass, W. E. B. Du Bois, Langston Hughes, and Countee Cullen -- a fitting tribute to an unlikely hero.
