When the first edition of this revolutionary book appeared in 1990, it seemed that the study of African Americans in slavery was out of temporal and geographical balance. Most of the time that slavery existed in the United States was the colonial period. Yet the focus of the study of American slavery -- and indeed of the history of all African Americans before the Civil War -- long had been on the institution as it operated in the Cotton South from about 1830 to 1860. African Americans in the Colonial Era served as an early corrective to that imbalance, and a broad wave of new historical literature on African-American colonial history has since emerged. Carefully revised and greatly expanded in light of that new scholarship, the second edition of this highly popular book also includes new topics such as African-Americans in colonial Louisiana and Spanish Florida. Readers will be taken through the totality of the early African-American experience, with material on west African culture; the Atlantic slave trade; the regional differences under which the institution operated; the rise of race-based prejudice; the role of African-Americans in the American Revolution; and the manifestation and evolution of the African-American family and community, the keystone to the formation of African-American culture.

A native of Oklahoma and the son of an attorney who practiced before the U.S. Supreme Court, John Hope Franklin has had a distinguished career as teacher, scholar, and historian of the African American experience in the United States. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Fisk University who took his Ph.D. at Harvard University in 1941, Franklin has taught or been visiting lecturer at a dozen institutions in the United States and abroad and holds honorary degrees from a great many more. After serving as professor and department chair at Brooklyn College and the University of Chicago, he assumed simultaneously two positions at Duke University - James B. Duke Professor in the Humanities and Professor of Legal History in the Law School. He has been president of the American Historical Association, the Organization of American Historians, the Southern Historical Association, and the American Studies Association. He also is a founding member of the Black Academy of Arts and has served on the U.S. Commission for UNESCO and the Committee on International Exchange of Scholars. Franklin's scholarly contributions are many. His comprehensive history From Slavery to Freedom (1947) is in its sixth edition and is generally acknowledged to be the basic survey of African American history. His other writings, which also have been well received, explore various aspects of America's racial and regional history, all with balance, sensitivity, and integrity.
