Brett Taylor asked:

Was there a town ever established by former slaves like Libertyville, SC in this book? I would like to visit it today,if there ever was such a place.

"Black towns, established by freed slaves after the Civil War, are dying out" -

"History’s Lost Black Towns" -

"Black History Month: Former Slave Founded a Town" -

"All-black towns across America: Life was hard but full of promise" -
