Review of Douglas R. Egerton, He Shall Go Out Free: The Lives of Denmark Vesey
Reviewed by Jeffrey Robert Young, H-Net Reviews, February 2001. Only recently has the old presumption of slave docility been challenged. We now appreciate the legacy of Black revolutionaries. This book situates Vesey against the swirling claims of white and black mythologies about slavery.
