Summary
"African Americans in St. Louis enjoyed greater autonomy and opportunity than those in urban areas of the South and East. Slaves in the city set legal precedent by filing hundreds of freedom suits, often based on the prohibition against slavery. This book explores the role of blacks in the history of St. Louis through the Civil War"--
