Summary Brotherly love (1791-1831) examines the new nation through Philadelphia's free black community. Free men and fugitive slaves seek full citizenship; black churches promote education, aid to the poor, and abolitionism. The cotton gin pushes slavery west, while Haiti's slave rebellion parallels a local quest for autonomy. Southern brutality and a new culture of blackface minstrelsy trouble African Americans, who vow to challenge democracy.
