Description

When the state of Illinois received its charter in 1818, it was declared a "free state," thus drawing many African-American pioneers to the area. Black Life in West Central Illinois offers a glimpse of the rich history of African-American life from the very beginning of the settlement of this region.The history of west central Illinois is presented here through memorable photographs and rare documents dating back to before, during, and after the Civil War. This book introduces a wide variety of characters, including 18th century explorer Jean Baptiste Point DuSable, pioneer "Free Frank" McWhorter, and comedian Richard Pryor.
