"Crystal Lynn Webster’s new book, Beyond the Boundaries of Childhood, asks how gradual emancipation in Northern States assigned Black children spaces outside the boundaries of Victorian childhood. Webster also reveals the ways in which Black children were harmed when they were included in reformers’ ideals about childhood, as white reformers felt that Black children’s vulnerability required separation from their families."
