    To Joy My Freedom was certainly an informative read and contained a lot of information that usually isn t well known regarding African American women after the Civil War, but the book just wasn t that interesting or exciting of a read to recommend it any higher.Once you start to get into the heart of it, To Joy My Freedom just sort of gets boring and begins to read like a history textbook It would have been nice if some of the events were elaborated on thoroughly or detailed better to grab the [...]

    An amazing look into the lives of black women during reconstruction in the South This book explains the hardships that most had to face in order to survive after slavery.

    Hunter examines the lives of southern black women, particularly southern domestic workers, by narrowing her focus in on the development of the city of Atlanta after the Civil War Since many ex slaves moved to Atlanta and then migrated again north during the Great Migration decades later, this makes for an excellent focal point for the topic By examining black women s lives in Atlanta both in and out of their employer s homes, she is able to dissect the roles of race, class, and gender in the eli [...]

    An well written and detailed book about the Black women s resilient struggles to claim their bodies, femininity, freedom, and political roles in the Urban South, especially Atlanta, from the Civil War to the First World War The book reveals a recurring theme of Southerners fright of Black women s agency, a fright that droves them to debase their position by any means possible, such as the enact of Jim Crow and support of Ku Klax Klan However, Black female, and Black society in general, were pers [...]

    This was assigned for the Black Women in America class that I am CAing for I really enjoyed the book a great deal Hunter s prose is very accessible, and I think she does a fantastic job of making the history of black women after the Civil War accessible and interesting to an undergraduate audience while still maintaining scholarly rigor That said, I am left wanting to know after many of her anecdotes and, while I understand that she couldn t possible give us all the details on every encounter, [...]

    Enlightened me about life for Black domestic workers in the South during and particularly after slavery Main focus was the Atlanta area Educational institutions, neighborhoods, and streets mentioned are thriving communities today Provided an appreciation for what our female domestic workers went through to get us where we are today.

    Excellent overview of the lives of Southern black women during the Reconstruction period and the early part of the twentieth century Well written and covers most of the major historiographical issues in African American women s history for the period.

    Fun drinking game for the book take a shot every time the author uses the phrase African American Women when referring to experiences that were commonplace to all African Americans Just a weirdly paced book that can t make up its mind on what its trying to say or what it wants to be about.

    Anika
    A must read for everyone The tales of these women were so matter of fact no matter if they were terrifying, touching or frustrating.

    April
    A detailed look at urban Atlanta slaves and antebellum Atlanta Urban life is often overlooked in discussions of the slavery south Interesting, but rather dry historical writing at times.

    Susan
    This is a really great work about the history of Southern Black Women It s great for people interested in women s history, American history, or Africana studies.

    To clarify, I didn t complete this book It is well researched and the topic is fascinating but I m just not into reading it at this time.
