Summary

John P. Parker is one of the few African Americans whose battle against slavery we can now turn to in his own words. He recounts dramatically how he helped fugitive slaves to cross the Ohio River from Kentucky and go north to freedom. He risked his life'”hiding in coffins, diving off a steamboat with bounty hunters on his trail'”and his freedom to fight for the freedom of his people.
