Wealthy Black Southerners

by Patrice Edwards

"It was endless. This wasn't just one incident." It never was one incident. Not to us. Not to them. This is their story.
Through a collection of stories from slaves and slave owners in the United States, Wealthy Black Southerners brings to light the tragic past of freed slaves, hardworking landowners, farmers, politicians fighting against injustice and many more vivid characters. Linked through the tragic retelling of America's dark past in the South, *Patrice Edwards* weaves a narrative that explains the complexity of the burgeoning colonies throughout the 1800s. This work of historical fiction draws inspiration from true events of the Ku Klux Klan, the amnesty bill and the Civil War.
