Additional Information

First published in 1962, Lincoln and the Negro was the first book to examine in detail how Lincoln faced the problem of the status of black people in American democracy, and it remains unsurpassed. Starting with Lincoln's childhood attitudes, Benjamin Quarles traces the development of Lincoln's thought in relation to the African American, a development which was to culminate in the Emancipation Proclamation. Concerned at first with methods of colonization outside the United States, Lincoln came later to advocate not only emancipation of the slaves, but also equal political rights for them. In addition, he was the first president to invite black Americans to the White House and to treat them as equals. Black attitudes towards Lincoln evolved almost as much Lincoln's own attitude. When he was first elected, blacks expected very little from Lincoln. But he slowly gained their respect—by recognition of individual African Americans, by placing them in the Union Army, and ultimately by the Emancipation Proclamation. His assassination served to enshrine him as a hero for the newly freed slaves. Lincoln and the Negro, in examining both sides of the relationship, is a vitally important contribution to our understanding of Abraham Lincoln and of American democracy itself.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Benjamin Quarles has done an excellent job of documenting the full picture of history. He really fills in gaps on scholarship for important parts of America's story that we all need to know. This book is carefully documented with lots of footnotes and really answers questions regarding how African Americans really felt about Lincoln and Lincoln's evolving persective. Quarles does the work of researching and providing real facts for each of his points, so we finish the book feeling educated. We also appreciate how he doesn't take sides but presents history the way it really was.
