In Their Own Words

"Though attacked and wounded, fractured and dispersed, not all African American families were destroyed nor all bloodlines broken. Indeed many of hte writings in the Afro-Protestant Press may be interpreted as demonstrating that even when deliberately unraveled, African American families reknit themselves into kinship communities of families ... that in fact functioned effectively enough to teach self-esteem and to encourage resistance to enslavement, to offer some physical protection and practical advice, and to preserve and perpetuate cultural practices."
