Extremely convincing.---Ilana Masad, NPR
[P]owerful and persuasive demonstrations of the complementary relationship between freedom and race. . . . [White Freedom] is a treasure trove of historical detail, but it's also written clearly and persuasively . . . a worthy addition to the recent surge of work rethinking the connection between race and other fundamental aspects of our social system.---Olรบfรฉmi O. Tรกรญwรฒ, The Nation
White Freedom is clear and engaging. It offers fresh insight to the idea of liberty -- an idea that is increasingly at the fore of societal concern. Stovall doesn't preach; he doesn't try to convince anyone to come to his side. He offers important context to the history of the development of freedom, and engaging analysis supported by carefully researched evidence. Stovall, a professor of history and dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Fordham University, gives us all the information we need, and then challenges us to look deeper.---Brock Kingsley, Chicago Review of Books
This cogent study of ideas of race and freedom has added relevance and crossover potential in today's political landscape.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
