Krauthamer’s book has been featured in The New York Times, ABC News, C-Span (above, at left) and numerous other media venues since its publication. The Opera House notice says that:
Krauthamer will discuss and read from her book and illuminate what freedom looked like for black Americans in the Civil War era. From photos of the enslaved on plantations and African American soldiers and camp workers in the Union Army to Juneteenth celebrations, slave reunions, and portraits of black families and workers in the American South, the images in this book challenge perceptions of slavery. They show not only what the subjects emphasized about themselves but also the ways Americans of all colors and genders opposed slavery and marked its end.
