Originally published in 1881, and revised by the author in 1889, Our Brother in Black: His Freedom and His Future is Atticus G. Haygood's concise and insightful study of race relations in the post-bellum American South. Dr. Haygood, president of Emory College from 1875-1884, reflects Southern progressive intellectualism in the aftermath of the American Civil War and consequent Reconstruction. At the core of Haygood's writing and thinking is an unflinching belief that God's hand was in the events expanding African slavery to American shores, the cataclysmic Civil War, and the ill-fated, short-circuited efforts to usher former slaves across the threshold to full citizenship. Central, too, is Haygood's resolution that all men of faith, regardless of skin color, can share common rights and responsibilities within a single free society, working for its progress and defending its liberties.
