Title: Grapevine Dispatch: The Voice of Antislavery Messages
SKU: 9781932250909
Safe houses, trustworthy individuals, pathways, abandoned shelters, and unattended skiffs--these were crucial pieces of information that were spread, through word or song, from plantation to plantation, by way of the "grapevine."
