It's an interesting, yet, difficult read because it uses a lot of outdated words and phrases. However, the book helps illuminate that racism was not only present in the South but it was also present in the North during the 1800s. You may want to read this book if you want to have an understanding in the perspective of a 'free' African American in the North.
