Abstract / Summary
Philadelphia is considered to be one of only a few American Colonial cities that gave birth to the American Revolution and democracy in the United States. However, as early as 1639, masses of enslaved Africans and former slaves who had purchased their freedom were living among the free whites of Philadelphia. Though afforded only the most rudimentary rights, many not even allowed the dignity of literacy, the African American community in Philadelphia still became one.
