First published in 1841, this book predates W. E. B. Du Bois’s The Philadelphia Negro by more than half a century. Written by Joseph Willson, a southern black man who had moved to Philadelphia, to convince whites that the African-American community in his adopted city did indeed have a class structure, and he offers advice to his black readers about how they should use their privileged status.

Extensive notes and introduction by Julie Winch. 216p. 9 black-and-white illustrations. Measures 5.5×8.5 inches.
