Being Black in New Hampshire: Two Hundred Years of African American Writers in the Granite State by Jeff Bolster.

Harriet Wilsonís Our Nig, published in 1859, is now rightfully famous. But it is far from the only memoir of Black life in the Granite State. Drawing on lesser known memoirs and novels, such (1958), and Black Ice, by Lorene Cary (1991), in addition to historical documents and the true story behind the Hollywood film, Lost Boundaries (1949), Professor Bolster will illuminate two hundred years of African-American Granite Statersí triumphs and tragedies.
