Jonathan Daniel Wells’ Blind No More: African American Resistance, Free-Soil Politics, and the Coming of the Civil Waris based on the Eugenia Dorothy Blount Lamar Lectures that Wells delivered in October 2017 at Mercer University in Georgia. Wells declares that his goal in this volume is to resolve the ongoing “struggle” in the United States to appreciate the role African Americans played in the sectional conflict that preceded the Civil War. By positioning African Americans at the “center of Civil War causation,” Wells believes he can achieve his goal and grant African Americans, slave and free, their rightful place in the American story.
