How freedpeople in North Carolina built rewarding lives in spite of
legal and social disadvantages; In Making Freedom Pay, Sharon Ann
Holt reconstructs how freed men and women in tobacco-growing
central North Carolina worked to secure a place for themselves in a
ravaged region and hostile time. Her micro-economic history of
Granville County, North Carolina, drawn extensively from public
records, assembles stories of individual lives from the initial
days of emancipation to the turn of the century. Making Freedom Pay
uses these highly personalized accounts of the day-to-day travails
and victories of ordinary people to tell a nationally significant
story of grassroots uplift.
