South to Freedom: Runaway Slaves to Mexico and the Road to Civil War (Basic Books, 2020), tells the story of the enslaved Blacks who escaped to Mexico in the four decades leading up to the U.S. Civil War. Focusing its attention on a not-well-known chapter of U.S. history, the book contributes to the canon a better understanding of Mexico’s rise as an antislavery republic and its overlooked significance to the United States.
