Abstract

Such a social history would offer a useful context for how factors like class, gender, employment, educational attainment, and geography might have influenced Boston’s black voters in their decisions to support or reject the Republican Party. These small qualms aside, Bergeson-Lockwood provides an exciting new framework for understanding northern black politics during the Reconstruction era. Engaging important historiographies on post–Civil War African American life in the North, postbellum black political culture, and the trajectory of the Republican Party after Reconstruction, Race over Party tells the story of Boston’s black independents with a keen eye for detail and a deep empathy for the difficult political choices these leaders made to build a better future for their community. Robert D. Bland robert d. bland is an assistant professor at the University of Tennessee. His scholarship explores the afterlife of Reconstruction in African American memory. Denmark Vesey’s Garden: Slavery and Memory in the Cradle of the Confederacy. By Ethan J. Kytle and Blain Roberts. (New York: New Press, 2018. Pp. 464. Cloth, $28.99.) This study is, as Ethan Kytle and Blain Roberts note, the first to “trace the memory of slavery from its abolition in 1865 to the present” in Charleston, South
