about this book

“Written in 1936 and based on an actual slave revolt, this critically acclaimed novel celebrates slave Gabriel Prossier’s struggle to end racial oppression.” — Publishers Weekly

“Gabriel Prosser’s 1800 slave revolt allowed Bontemps to warn of the rebellion that would come of poverty and racial oppression. This metaphor of revolution is at the same time a highly pertinent representation of black masculinity that will reward students of gender, slavery and the sensibilities of the 1930s.” - Nell Irvin Painter
