Hayness writings constitute the fullest record of a black mans religion, social thought and opposition to slavery in the late-18th and early-19th century. Drawing on both published and rare unpublished sourcess, John Saillant here offers a comprehensive study of Haynes and his thought. The book is intended for students, scholars and general readers interested in American religious history and African American History
