Narratives of Colored Americans, by Abigail Mott (1795 - 1846) and M. S. Wood (1805 - 1894)
Abigail Mott was a Quaker and abolitionist from New York who, along with fellow Quaker Mary Sutton Wood, has compiled a provocative collection of stories of “Colored Americans.” They range from well-known figures, such as Phillis Wheatley and Sojourner Truth, to common men and women who give poignant insights of their life. Selections consist of short anecdotes, essays, stories, letters and poetry. Many have strong religious and spiritual themes. (Summary by Larry Wilson)

Prefect. Thank you so much!

I think this will be a very interesting project, with a variety of formats and a lot of short sections with some longer ones, so something for everyone who might be interested in the topic.

A DPL would be most welcome!

And, ready for readers.
~ Larry

I'm going to go ahead and move us to Readers Wanted, since we haven't had a DPL step forward yet. We can advertise, when/if we need to. :)

Thanks, Alan.
One of the shortest sections in the project, but I didn't see a reasonable way to combine it.
