Feldman, Eugene Pieter Romayn.  BLACK POWER IN OLD ALABAMA: THE LIFE AND STIRRING TIMES OF JAMES T. RAPIER, AFRO-AMERICAN CONGRESSMAN FROM ALABAMA, 1839-1883.  (Chicago): (1968).  1st ed., 69(7)p., illus. by Margaret T. Burroughs and Jennie Washington, map, facsims.

Born during slavery days in Florence, Alabama, Rapier became a Reconstruction-era congressman, labor, organizer, and newspaper editor.  A fascinating life that puts the lie to so many old myths about African American politicians during Reconstruction.

Fine.
