Abstract:

"For black Americans seeking to know more about their ancestry, and for all Americans interested in the black contribution to the development of the United States, Black California is an excellent resource. This pioneer work covers a three-century history of the African-American's vital role in the cultural and commercial development of California - from the Spanish speaking blacks who colonized the California frontier, through the Gold Rush and the freeing of the slaves, to the development of black schools and churches and the establishment of black commercial enterprises."--BOOK JACKET.
