520    In an unprecedented quest to find the last surviving 
       children of slaves, searching from Los Angeles to New 
       Orleans, from Virginia nursing homes to Alabama churches, 
       Sana Butler provides a fascinating picture of African 
       American life and its legacy in the post-Civil War world. 
       Drawing on interviews she began in the summer of 1997 with
       centenarian sons and daughters of slaves, Butler reveals 
       how African Americans emerged from slavery with a deep 
       commitment to the future and a powerful energy to make the
       most of their opportunities, large and small. Like 
       immigrants in a new land, freed slaves faced a new America
       with enthusiastic hopes and dreams for their children. The
       children of slaves were raised to be independent and often
       fearless thinkers, laying the groundwork for what would 
       later become the Civil Rights Movement.--From publisher 
       description.
