"No country can tell its history truthfully until all its scrolls are unrolled" quotes Emma Lapsansky-Werner in the Foreword to “this wonderful anthology that mirrors the hard work and dedication of religious believers and practitioners, philosophers and scholars across several centuries.” Quakers in America have a reputation for work against slavery and for civil rights, but the stereotypical Quaker—, pictured on the familiar box of oatmeal, —is white, middle class, and complacent. African Americans who have involved themselves with the Religious Society of Friends are little recognized or remembered as Quakers. In this anthology—the first of its kind—the voices of African American Friends, speaking from their own experiences and opinions, are brought together.
