Freedom By Any Means by Betty Deramus

Freedom By Any Means
Con Games, Voodoo Schemes, True Love, And Lawsuits On The Underground Railroad
by Betty Deramus

Essence magazine described bestselling author Betty DeRamus’ Forbidden Fruit as “a rich collection of true slave-era tales that are at times haunting, often riveting, but always triumphant in the end,” and her Freedom by Any Means is just as compelling. This time DeRamus takes a broader look at the various ways slaves achieved freedom, surviving against the odds and even prospering as they built businesses and owned land and other property.
Drawing on unpublished memoirs, census records, government reports, periodicals, books and more, it reveals how these men and women risked their lives to escape enslavement, but also called on great intelligence, cunning and bravery to outwit the system and powerfully assert their humanity.
