Reviews

"Harrison shows us that the presence of enslaved labor at the heart of the United States tells us truths that we must confront with honesty, and with the commitment to repair." --Edward E. Baptist, Cornell University

"Black Hands, White House is a courageous call to pay homage to a neglected and often forgotten past." --Terrence L. Johnson, Georgetown University

"Harrison invites readers to engage in a historical survey of facts about enslaved, trafficked humans whose labor was essential to the building and maintenance of this country's national city and to think seriously about myths, lies, and deliberate miseducation that sustain systems and constructions of whiteness." --Angela D. Sims, Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School
