Benjamin Coates was one of the best-known white supporters of African colonization in 19th century America. a Quaker from Philadelphia, he was committed to helping Black Americans relocate to West Africa. at the heart of the volume is a collection of over 150 recently recovered letters, either written by Coates or addressed to him between 1848 and 1880. Lapsansky and Bacon, who led a team of young scholars that annotated the letters, have provided a far-reaching essay that places them in context. This book provide new insight into the alliances and divisions within the antislavery movement.
