White, Red, and Black examines and compares the three races who lived in Virginia during the seventeenth century. Each is described according to its origin and cultural background, its population in America, its settlement locations, and its relations with the other two races. Extensive notes amply document the author's conclusions and provide a helpful summary of other scholarship on the subject.Craven's lectures present an accurate and fully documented picture of the seventeenth-century Virginian. They correct many assumptions long held by historians, and they open the way to a greater understanding of the beginning years of our nation.
