Abstract:

A Different Ideology of Capitalism and Race Relations For Free Black Communities

During emancipation years, African Americans developed a wide variety of political and cooperative community building practices through cooperative racial relations during the 1800s through the 1900s. This notion of community building resulted in cooperative economic activities and empowering political practices relating to historical issues of race, gender and politics. The impact of these practices influenced varied institutions affecting law, employment, education and industrial relations. From the findings of my research, I discovered how a different ideology of capitalism and a different ideology of race relations were established in relation to the free black communities that formed from UGRR initiatives and abolition initiatives. I used CRT theory, community resources, historical documents, diaries, slave narratives and fugitive press. With the methods of ethnohistorical research, I researched the free black communities that were part of the UGRR routes and the relationship of abolition and their local communities with emerging college towns.

What was the role of the institutions of higher learning upon the free black communities and their workers? I will use the example of the free black community in Central PA and the local history of Penn State as an inquiry model. But what was the role of free blacks and what was their impact on the larger social, and political economy in African American life? What was the role of abolitionists and white town leaders and their impact on the political economy in these free black communities?
