A product of the groundbreaking, collaborative work of the Colored Convention Project (CCP), a series of essays edited by Gabrielle P. Foreman, Jim Casey, and Sarah Lynn Patterson, in concert with the book’s “digital components . . . is a unique and inventive contribution to the field of digital humanities and the current scholarship on the long nineteenth century.” The Colored Conventions Movement gives insight into how these conventions reflected and shaped Black political consciousness and illustrates the fact that emancipation activism was led by Black Americans while white allies followed.
