DESCRIPTION

Readers will learn the evolution of the helping tradition from traditional Africa to slavery in the United States, among free blacks, through Reconstruction, and into rural and urban states. Spread through fictive kinship and religious consciousness, the tradition incorporated mutual aid, social-class cooperation, male/female equality, and pro-social behavior in children.
