“Anita Hackley Lambert has written a fascinating and compelling book. Based on years of research and family interviews, this biography of Freeman Henry Morris Murray (1859-1950) uncovers deeply buried family mysteries and sheds new light on various aspects of black history, such as the Underground Railroad before and after the Civil War, the Niagara Movement, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, and African American life in Alexandria, VA and in Washington, DC. An impressive and important labor of love.”
